The neckline –
All done – ready to wear! I made some changes. I cut off a total of 12 inches on either side – it was tooooo baggy. Then I tapered the sleeves to get down to an 8′ cuff. I didn’t hem it – just overcast the edge which gives it a frilly look. I like this top and will wear it with a cami to hide the bra straps. Sigh. If I was 20 I’d show the bra straps. What you can tolerate at 20 looks kind of silly at 61!
On a side note – I’ll bet you’ll be excited – I’m going to try and get highlights in my hair. I’m going with caramel and auburn I think. It’s supposed to look like Victoria Beckham’s hair. Well sort of. I got about 2″ cut off yesterday and I like it much better. I’m going to keep it this length and not go in for shoulder length hair!
