Deepika, your top looks beautiful. Where do you buy the foldover elastic and what width do you use? Also -- do you use this neckline finish on other LH tops as well? Thanks so much for reviewing this!

I recently bought this pattern from PR, I was thinking of binding the neck, then sewing up the center front seam. Is that how you did it?

That came out perfectly. You really did a good job.

Jennifer I use Foldover elastic on a lot of my tops. Once you get the hang of it, it's such a quick and easy finish. I've bought FOE from Kathy's and from Daytona Trimming in NYC. I generally use a 1". Diane, I should have done it that way, but instead I bound it after the top was sewn together. I am not too happy with the little dimple in the front, but yes, if I were to make this again and I will, I will do it the way you described.

Your top is beautiful. I have to get better at sewing knits...every time I read a review....I wonder why don't mine look like that.

How could I forget... The mittens were a gift from Karin. I really do love them. I could never knit like her.

Deepika, your sweater is beautiful (as are you)-- thanks for the FOE idea (I just discovered FOE a few weeks ago...) It feels like PR-NYC was just a few weeks ago, doesn't it?? :)

That is really pretty, especially since you think of it as a wearable muslin-the colors look wonderful on you! Love the mittens too :o)
