Ottobre 4/2008 Raglan hooded top

Well this top was a long time coming.  I cut it out to complete at the CM retreat back a month ago.  And I realised while I was there that I hadn't cut the neck binding out.  Now that I have finished the project I know why!

Does anyone have any good tips on how to sew together a layer of top, 2 layers of binding and a lined hood?
Next time I think I will be just adding the hood or the binding, not both.

But apart from that the results are excellent. 

My twin stretch needle and I are yet to become good friends, but we are working on it.  I cant seem to get the tension right!

boys will be boys :)

Great colour combination. Maybe try a walking foot for the thick sections? Susan :)

Wonderful. Amazing + uber cool.
I've no tips or advice... they look mighty fine to me so I don't really think you need it!
