It's a little difficult to blog about something you've made but don't like very much. The difficulty isn't the pattern, it's the knitter and the choices made. With Liesl, what you see is what you get. The neck determines the size and fit...what you have in the end is determined at the starting point. If you want a larger sweater, one that buttons in the front, you must make a wide neck. If you make a smaller neck you'll end up with an open front. That's what the pattern pictures show and that's what you get.
You can see in the back view how the sleeves are small, tight and pull uncomfortably across my back when I move or lift my arms. This style isn't suited to someone with square shoulders and it was a poor choice of pattern for me on many levels, even if it is cute.
