You can see, below, that the construction is so different and it is scrunched up on the needles. This is the right side before it was finished. Now that it's on scrap yarn, waiting for the band, I can pull it out and try to unroll it for a better idea of fit. It looks like it will be long enough. Remember, it grew with blocking. Also, the armhole was plenty big enough. That's often an issue for me, so that one fact gave me confidence to start on the left side. Which is now finished.
Actually, even if the whole thing was more fitted (with the exception of the armhole) than the sample, it would still be really cute. But I think adding sleeves and the band will pull things into place nicely. I really look forward to this knit each evening!
