With all that said, here is one of my creations. I had originally planned on sewing up this fabulous black/white striped linen from Mood in a loose turtleneck sweater thing from Burda, as shown below:
I had it mostly sewn together, and decided it was horrible. It really just was not flattering, so I took it almost entirely apart and started over on Saturday. I kept whittling away at it, and ended up with a sleeveless top with a very small mock turtleneck (?). Unfortunately I don't really remember much of what I ended up doing, as it was a very organic process (as in I had no idea what I was doing), I also managed to break all my serger needles (4 of them), so the insides aren't finished the nicest, but I did zig-zag the seam allowances, as it will probably be a frayer. I wasn't sure about it at first, but I do think I like it after all.
