You may be wondering why there's no buttoned version. I can button it, but because it turned out long, it pulls across my hips as the button is at the fullest part. So it wasn't too flattering. If I made this again with this yarn, I would make a bigger swatch and measure how much it grew lengthwise as well as widthwise. I think it grew 3" in that direction (although I didn't do a final pre-blocking length measurement) as it ended up being 24" long and should have been about 21". The width grew from about 30" (wayyyy too small) to the 35.5" size that I made. That size fits fine in the upper body and would have worked at the high hip, but not over the butt! Which I don't feel too bad about as not a lot of people have a lower hip measurement smaller than 35.5".
