I didn't get home until early evening tonight so that meant that I had little time to do any sewing, but I really really wanted to do something.
When I made up Jalie 2921 I had a little of the fabric left over, but not enough to make a complete top, so I thought I would use it to create the contrast in McCalls 6435, but this time I would Make view D with the asymmetrical yoke front and back.
I used the cable knit for the yokes and the sleeves, but I didn't quite have enough for a full-length sleeve, so I made up the shortfall with the cotton knit jersey that I used for the body back and front, which I bought at the same time as the lemon cable knit because I thought they would match.
I top-stitched the seams joining the contrasting fabrics to make sure the seam allowance didn't expose itself in the sheer cable knit fabrics.
This is a really quick and easy top to sew up, I would have completed it much quicker had I not managed to melt the fabric in the back cable knit with a hot blast of steam - I HATE UNPICKING SERGED SEAMS. Thankfully I wasn't paying attention and cut out two front yokes and two back yokes so utilised one of the spares to replace the ruined piece.
I just have to hem sleeves, bottom and neck edge, but will change my serger over to the cover stitch in the morning now as its too late.
Well I think I had best make my way to bed, otherwise I will kick over into Houston time zone again.
Catch you later............
