This Blog Post Is Going To Look Really Familiar

I know this is going to look a lot like Friday's post, but it's actually very different!  On Friday I showed you sort of what was going on and how I was planning to fix it.  Over the weekend I undid everything I had attempted and after several more attempts, I figured it out!
I decided to go with the shell edging, but instead of making shells with double crochet (Friday) I tried half double crochet shells (this made them a little smaller) and that worked.  I also took apart the lower edge and changed to smaller hooks to keep it from flaring.  I worked the same shell edging there as well.
Finally, I gave it a bit of a blocking, focusing on the edgings to make sure they were going to do what they were supposed to and now I'm ready to begin the sleeves!

In case you want specific details, I added notes on the Ravelry project page so I could do this again someday and (obviously sooner than that) get the sleeve cuffs finished when I get to them.

I really like the simplicity of your edges. They look very finished, but in a subtle way.

I'm so glad you found a way to keep the scallops. They're elegant, simple, and feminine. Well done!

I love how this looks and how great to do the bottom edge too. This is a great looking top.
