Finishing details…

Remember this? I made it ages ago from one of my grandad’s old shirts. I took it in, reset the sleeves and made a new collar.

I reused as much as I could, these bits were the cuffs. Faffy, but cute.

But I didn’t have enough to make any facings. I decided to leave it because I’m lazy, but mum really liked it so I gave it to her. That was ages ago and she hasn’t really worn it because the snipped edges flap up sometimes and look messy.

Cue 6 months later and 10 minutes with some bias binding…

…and it looks so neat now. The miracle of bothering to finish things in a tidy way never ceases to amaze me!
