I wasn't crazy about the moss stitch because it seems to puff out a bit, it's kind of grown on me now. I especially like the way it lays on the collar. I would reconsider using it as a bottom hem because of this tendency to puff or roll, unless I did something wrong. I think it's great for sleeves if I plan to turn the cuff up, there's a nice crease there.
I did excellent in the waist shaping and hip proportions, the entire sweater for that matter including the length. This sweater provides ample butt coverage though it would not be considered a dress option.
Even though I stated I did not care for having to start this top with individual pieces that had to be put together, I enjoyed learning a new technique and will most likely use it again.
The only mistake I made is in decreasing at the bust to start waist shaping. The top was not going to have the fit I wanted so I started decreasing and they were not spaced out enough or maybe I should have started sooner. I think it's because I was busy trying not to mess up that beautiful stranded work. Anyway, I have a slight pucker under each underarm. Hidden away from the world so it's not even a big deal I just want to learn from it so it won't happen again.
