I'm going through a tough love episode with my clothes these days....
Gotta say, it was a messy unpicking, but my new Janome 9200D neatened up those edges in no time flat!
I took a two inch strip from the removed cowl
then stitched it to the raw edge of the neckline. I messed around with a few ideas but settled on this
nice neat turned under and handstitched option. I don't lack for cool necklaces to wear with it
but last month's efforts to empty my knits and jersey tubs will work as well (plus keep my neck warm).
