This is the 2nd of my unfinished projects that I pledged to complete in. 2015. Technically this is my daughter's project but with two young children and a change in job she has been unable to find the time to finish it.
This was to have been her first sewn garment in navy ponte. Rather than use a pattern she simply traced around a favourite top and had already stablized and sewn the neck, shoulder and outer arm seams. The project had stalled when the neckband turned out a bit wavy.
After 18 months she asked I could finish the top for her. I simply pinned the side seams and marked a new neckline whilst she was wearing it. I cut off the old neckband and added a new one and used the overlocker to sew the side seams, cuffs and hem band.
Needless to say she was happy to have this project finished. I hope that as she has ended up with a wearable top she won't be put off having another go herself when she has more time.
