What was your inspiration?
Looks like a nice pattern and is my style. Will upload photo once it is completed.
What are you most proud of?
I am having a hard time setting the sleeves into the body. First I did it with right sides together and used a mattress stitch. This looked awful. So I did some research and decided to start again , this time weaving in the edges. This had varying success. Next time I will try and use a straight stitch as in sewing with right sides together. I am sufficiently happy with it so I will leave it until I decide it needs to be redone. The beauty after all is in the finishing! Just working on putting the sleeves together now. I found the wrist to a little narrow so I am leaving a slit there.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I added about 3 inches to the rib. I am 5 8 and not a sping chicken so a cropped top does not work! I really like the pattern and probably do one in cotton with short sleeves.
I also saw an opportunity to do a 3 needle bindoff to put front and back together so as to avoid sewing together! The result is very nice.
