It doesn't look like this anymore. After finishing the collar and all the hems and bands (one big circle), I bound it off, took a look, and thought yuck. I knit it up using a fairly big needle, in keeping with the lace at the bottom hem, and it just wasn't good! It was floppy and unsatisfactory. So I ripped out ALLLLLL the ribbing, went down 3 needle sizes and cast on again. Wish me luck!
