Yesterday’s post resulted in a lovely blue cardigan, McCall’s M6802 ….. that needed some improvement.
The pattern instructions suggest to leave the bottom and collar edge rough or to hem the bottom and collar edge up as usual. The problem with that is the bottom hem continues up into the collar hem, which then flops around to show the wrong side of the hemming. Something I do not like.
So I purchased some wide foldover broadcloth to cover the edges (it looked just like double fold bias tape) and some single fold bias tape to cover the inside seams that might show with movement.
They were so easy and quick to sew on!
Finished! and I am really happy with it! I think I shall wear it to work tomorrow!
