Mermaid Adaptation

I'm back to the halfway point on my Mermaid after frogging. This time, I tried something different with the color changes and it's working out great. I'm carrying the unused colors along, catching them behind the sl2wyif/wyibs. I make sure to stretch out the hem before using a carried color and it's keeping a nice drape to the fabric. And I'll only have 3 ends to fuss with later.

This is what the back looks like...

Looks great!! It sure would save a lot at time at the end, when you want to wear it, to not have to weave in all those ends! Thanks for sharing.
