I did try, this afternoon, to finish off one of my UFOs. I really did try. The project that is behind all this procraftinating is Rachel Comey's pullover top, Vogue 1247.
This project has been waiting for some attention since sometime in May of this year. And today, damn it!, was going to be the day that I was going to finish it.
I carefully pinned and french seamed and then I tried it on. Oh yes, now I remember why it became a procrafinated object. That darn neckline. I found it quite low for my liking. It sits lower on me than it appears to sit on the model on the pattern envelope. I tried, unsuccessfully, to fix it by taking it in where the neckline and centre front seam meets. It did not work out as I intended and now the neckline does not fall as well on the right side as it does on the left side. It is not really noticeable but I know it is not the best fix.
I wish I didn't try it on for I feel another bout of procraftinating coming on. Oh why fight it, besides this calls for cookies.
