Well I've had it cut out for months ! And I mean months , it was one of those projects I cut out and then instantly couldn't be bothered with!
Anyway after giving myself a good talking to I finished it off, including hand sewing the hems and facings.
No I see why I avoided it in the first place! Boy was I peeved! I mean look at those shoulders I look like an extra from a period drama!
I have no idea if it was the fabric, or my sewing, or if I traced the pattern wrong, but I was not a happy bunny!
In fact I was so unhappy I hacked the bloody sleeves off!
And voila! Much better and no work lost!
I love the tie neck and the loose fit.
And I love that I managed to salvage all that work! Including my 7 buttonholes that went in no bother!!!
Got to say I'm pretty pleased with myself to say I nearly threw it in the bin twice!
Anyway I'm off to work on a refashion!
