Mareena for me

I have a confession. This is actually the second Mareena top that I've made for myself. It's hard to get a photograph of me wearing something since I take most of the photos around here. That is a funny thought considering Col is more knowledgeable with a camera. It's also funny that I always dislike the photos that he takes of me. Or perhaps it's more that I just don't like seeing photos of myself. I had the choice of two photos. One where I'm smiling and look happy or another where I have a horrid expression on my face. Either way just look at the top, ok?
mareena v2 #2

The pattern is Mareena from Cinderella*Zwergen*Mode. I got mine from my "dealer" aka Crafty Mamas. The fabric is stella knit in New Cherry and the sleeves are pieces of Asian inspired print knits. I bought them as a remnant pack from Sheree's Alchemy a while back.

I like the pattern, but I don't think raglan tops are the best design for my body. It is very comfy though!
