My Saturday morning project
Wow, grosgrain ribbon...who knew?
Forgive the awful, awful picture...the updated camera on my cell phone has a focus and exposure issue. I'll try again next week at work - the light is better there, but I'm so happy with the way it turned out that I had to share.
Now that the ribbon is on it the sweater collar doesn't flip out like it seems as though it was designed to do, but that's fine, I like it this way.
Here, the glimpse of the inside:
Isn't it fun? And here's a close up.
Why yes I DO look like a vampire, how...odd.
I am seriously impressed with the effect that the ribbon had on the finished object. It was time consuming to be sure, I think it took about an hour per side, but worth it? Absolutely. Considering the time I spent on the sweater another two hours to make it really wearable is completely worth it.
Thanks for all your suggestions & support in egging me on to make this sweater right, I am SO happy I did!!
