Sea Breeze Crochet Top Progress
Once home, I continued to crochet the Sea Breeze top. As you can see here, this is the back view. You can probably just make out the pin at the top of the overhang??
Well I tried it on yesterday, and it was almost a perfect fit. It was a little large across the back, so I unpicked the previously sown up edge and re stitched it. It was a bit of a disaster to start of with as I had neatly sown in the ends, and then couldn't find them so I was worried that I would be cutting the stitches!! But I got there in the end. I have left a long "tail" of wool which I have wound around a safety pin so it can be (a) tried on again and (b) easily adjusted later on. A lesson learnt - don't sow ends in until you have had a fitting!!
This is the front view. The "bodice" part now measures approximately 7 inches, so just another 7 or 8 to go! Then its the straps left + buttons to decorate.
That will probably be finished today then.
What colour should I do next????
