The weather has turned a little cooler here and I've been wearing my Raspberry Blaze to work and I must say that it is wonderful. The length is perfect, just past my elbows, and it looks great. The only down side that I had noticed was that the neckline seemed to be stretching and it was starting to want to slip off my shoulders. Yikes! So I went to my random ribbon stash and found a thin gold satin ribbon and threaded it through the eyelet holes near the top. I then sewed the two ends together. To do that I folded each end over about 1/2 inch, I folded one toward the wrong side and one toward the right side, and then I slipped the folds into each other so that the raw edge of each end was nestled in the fold of the other. I carefully hand sewed the overlapping edges to join everything securely. I will have to make more of these, and I imagine that the Beadcats will covet them so I may just preempt that by making them each one.
