At last ...

I managed to spend some quality time with my sewing machines on Saturday at my ASG Group, working on 2 UFO's that have been staring at me for a while now.

The first is another version of KS 3740, I love this pattern and when I purchased this fabric this was the pattern I had in mind for it.

This top was cut out and sewn back in May, but when I tried it on to find the hem length, I noticed the sleeves were twisted, so it has been languishing on my sewing table waiting for me to unpick the 4-thread overlocking I had used to sew the sleeves in.

So on Saturday the sleeves were re-sewn, and the hems levelled and coverstitched in place.


Now to add the finishing touches to my cardigan, back soon!

Lovely Sharon! This is so pretty and the fabric a happy reminder of your trip - the best possible souvenir that you will enjoy each time you eat it :)

Not eat ... Wear! How did that funny typo happen!

Great fabric for that top Sharon - so worth the effort of unpicking and finishing.

What a fabulous wardrobe building top. I think it will work with almost your entire wardrobe. Lovely fabric and a great neckline.

That is a very cute top, Sharon! It's a little hard to see what is going on with the neckline, but it's very cute!

Lovely blouse Sharon! Can you or another tell me-how do sleeves get twisted when sewing? What do you mean by that?

Lovely - great top and the fabric is really nice. Looks good with the skirt too.

Wanda said...

I love the top! Funny how we do that isn't it - leave something when it is almost finished because it reqires unpicking. Hate that part!

Judith said...

Super fabric colours on you! Glad you have finished this one as I am sure you will be wearing it heaps...

Renata said...

Love the bright colours of the fabric. I have found recently that just getting on and finishing the 'horrible' sewing jobs gives me a super boost of motivation. Well done (as usual).

Another lovely top. You are really good at picking colours and prints that work for you. It looks lovely.

This print is even more lovely in real life. I really love the colours in this print and it looks great on you.

Top looks great. Sorry to miss Guild on Saturday, had to take DD to university open day.

Carolyn said...

Absolutely beautiful! I love those colours and that print too; just gorgeous all round :)

Your perseverance paid off well! A very versatile top...bet it looks good with jeans too.

There's something very rewarding about unpicking overlocked stitching and then successfully resewing! This top looks very professional - beautiful fabric choice.
