Wow Marybeth! A great idea that turned out beautifully. You've inspired me.

I can see why it gets noticed - it frames your face so beautifully.

It's so good to see something different out of polar fleece! Very fresh and creative.

Your top looks so warm and comfortable. Again, I love that lettuced edge.

Katharine: I used a commercial serger with wooly nylon in the loopers and Maxilock in the needle. This machine has only one looper so I run two threads through it. You can do the same thing with a home serger.

I LOVE the lettuce sleeves! They're very eye-catching. Did you lettuce with your SM or with a serger?

Love the lettuce! Did you lettuce the cowl also, or leave it raw? Cute-n-cosy, bravo.

Lisa M: I just edited the review to make it clearer that this is the view A.

What a great look! Is THIS one view B also? I haven't seen anyone do view B off-the-shoulder yet. I've only made view A, the bulky (as opposed to the thinner) on-the-shoulder one.

The top looks great and goes nicely with the jumper. I have yet to try polarfleece. Seems to sew very well

I would not have considered polarfleece for this top, but it's really nice. The cowl sits "just right" and it looks so cozy and warm. The lettuce treatment give a feminine touch to the sleeve.

MaryBeth, that looks so good on you! The white cowl really livens up the jumper and makes it more interesting. I love the lettuce edging.
