It's a crappy pic but here she is!
I love it! It was worth every minute that I spent fighting it! There are a few more details on my blog, not many, but a few. Thanks for the great pattern Bonnie Marie :)
So here is Adriann Sunday morning...I am now at the 3rd increase and contemplating redoing the first button hole as I balls-ed up the placement within the button band and it is not centered. This should be a joyful process as another fun aspect of Merlin is it loves to split. Before I am too down on Linen as a yarn I will say that the tunic of linen I made last year while at sea (and that is the only reason I finished such an enormous project) has worn and worn and looks as good as the day I finished (better because the stitches have 'healed' my one mistake)...and it has softened with every wash.
