I can't say much for my iPhone photography skills- my husband Ron , will be appalled!
He is a professional photographer. I'm not even going to ask him for help, he just gets grumpy. So this will have to do until I learn how to do it better!
I managed my neck band by putting it on so the overlock was on the outside, pressed it and tacked it down in a few inconspicuous places, I think it worked.
I hemmed the sleeves with a double needle but for the hem I pressed up the allowance and did my version of rolled hem stitch I mentioned before, then cut off the excess from the backside. I found this added a little more weight. I axed the pocket idea, and the bling, there is just enough going on.
The only thing I haven't mentioned is when I did the stamping on fabric I used Ranger Archival Ink and it must be heat set or it will wash out, and that would be a shame.I think I'll make some tights and an infinity scarf to wear with it . Maybe I'll get a better shot of it outside in the daylight. Now I have one more piece of laundry:)
