Stripes for me too!

I finished this top a couple of days ago, it’s Vogue 8950, here   The navy and yellow is a loop back jersey and the yellow is from a remnant bought in France. In hindsight a simple yellow Ponte would have been better for the yoke as they would have been a similar weight. Instead this is a heavy fleece back jersey which has very little stretch.

The neckline was way too wide for me for a winter top so I had to put a neckband on which is where the no stretch issue really caused me a problem. The first one I cut wouldn’t fit the opening no matter how hard I tried. The resulting neckline is I feel slightly loose but not so much that I won’t wear it, I’m reasonably happy with it.

Thanks so much @mums sewing machine , I would just mention that the neckline as drafted is very wide. When I cut it out next time, I may adjust the pattern to bring it in a bit rather than adding a neckband.
