This was some lovely delicate lemon cable knit which I thought would look great with my Navy or my black trousers, it also looks nice with green and brown too, so very versatile, so I decided this was the fabric to use.
This was another way of tying the scarf using the black buckle which was in my stash, and gives another look.
On this top I raised the neck edge because the other two tops I made were just a little bit too low and by raising the neck by 1.5" has made this more comfortable and provides more modesty.
I may wear a camisole top under this, because its not a particularly thick knit, but when I tried it on, it wasn't as see-through as it looks in the photograph, but I guess better to be safe than embarrassed.
So just to give some of the stats:-
Fabric: Walthamstow market £1.50 per metre giving a total cost of approximately £2.50.
Pattern: Jalie 2921
Alterations to pattern: raise neck line by 1.5"
Time to make: 2 hours
Equipment used: Babylock serger/overlocker
Bernina sewing machine
Sewing needle and thread to close small scarf collar opening.
I can go to bed satisfied I completed something.
Catch you later.................
