Pretty in Pink

I've finished Alisa from Pursuit of Fiber just in time for summer. I love the lace panels on this sweater -- that's what convinced me to buy the pattern. The yarn is Berroco Nostalgia (a cotton/acrylic/nylon blend). I'm hoping the nylon will help keep its shape.
Customizations: I used waist shaping instead of the a-line shaping. I started the v-neck a little bit lower. I used crochet edging on the neckline also, and I made a shaped slightly scooped neckline for the back because it is a summer sweater and I did not want the back of my neck covered. Finally, I made the side lace panels mirror images of each other.
