In a fit of madness I decided to eschew using facing for this top and instead finished the neckline with bias binding. To make matters worse (OK this is really embarrassing) I decided to use my overlocker to speed up the process – why, why, why – and now the neckline is stretched (yes I had stay stitched it but I still managed to stretch it).
It’s a silk crepe so not the easiest fabric to unpick. I still have about a quarter of a metre left which I could use for facing. Alternatively I could put a collar on it, however it has to be a proper adult collar, I’m still firmly of the belief that no one over the age of 10 should dress like Peter Pan.
What do you think? Can I rescue it?
