Palo Alto, Calif...
Using Lydia as my base, I widened the neck, raised the arm opening, and left off the sleeves. For the neck, arms, and hem – I bound each with a folded strip of fabric, stitched it (1/4") to the wrong side along raw edges, then flipped it to the front, and zig-zagged close to the folded edge. Now if I can just get the weather to cooperate, I can wear it outside without a cardigan. (Once again, I can’t link this project to the pattern)
