I've finished all three pieces of the silver bells. There are two pieces that make up the top half...each piece is a sleeve and a front and a back. The peplum then gets attached beneath it. Last night I finished the button bands that will frame the fronts that you see here (they extend up from the peplum) as well as the center back panel. So now all I have to do is sew it all together. The challenging part will be the peplum since it is just big and needs some easing and taking in, I believe. We'll see.
And I really want to do this because it is 80 degrees here and nothing is more tempting than an alpaca sweater in summer. She said snarkily. I think it is supposed to go back to 'spring' tomorrow or the next day (ie 60 degrees and rain) so i should just shut up and enjoy it.
