Inserting the Sweetheart Neckline - The Ostara Top

Friday, March 23, 2018

Today, I'm showing you how I insert and secure the pleats for the sweetheart neckline for View 2 of the Ostara Top.

You can choose to stack your pleats on top of each other (depending on how thick/slippery your fabric is) or you can off-set them slightly.

I have off-set my sample versions by about 3mm (1/8") from each other, but feel free to play around with this to suit you and your tastes. If you stitch your neckline in and don't like how it's looking, simply unpick it (leaving your pleat markings in place) and try again.

To see how it's done, watch the video below (I've also included a few static close up images in case that's useful).

I think this step is really about taking your time and experimenting with the look of the neckline. You also don't have to use all of the markings (leave the last one off for a shallower neckline).
