Lace Crop Top Sweater

Hello,
I finished my first project for Magam and September Sew For 30-2016 and happy with the result :)This crop top has a boat neck style and 3/4 sleeve length, I think it will be nice to wear with trousers or high-waist skirt.
I didn't wear it yet but I will when the weather getting fresh :)

Materials: I used 1.25 m of lace fabic in light blue colour and same colour of thread.
Pattern: BurdaStyle Crop Top Sweater 08/2016 #106 size 36. I didn't make any change to the pattern, I used the same length as the original pattern and the result is little bit longer on me than on the model, which I liked :) Also, I used 1.5 cm seam allowance in all edges and 4 cm hem allowances.

The process of making this top was enjoyable, except matching the lace lines. I spent one morning matching - pinning and sew them in place :)

I used my overlocker machine to sew all the raw edges and sew the neckline using sewing machine. The pattern suggested to hand sewing the neckline but I prefer sewing…
