More Marmalade Progress

Sewing on trims is so trying for me, but this one I'm feeling pretty good about! The main problem is just not feeling confident that I'm doing it right.

I ended up sewing on the trim as I went along to be sure it would match up. I am not sure if the blocking should have happened first, but I think after will be ok in this case. The edges weren't really curling.

It took an excruciating number of tries for me to get the back stitching to look nice around the back of the neck, connecting the side edge of the trim to the cast off edge of the neck.

In the next picture, you are looking down at the shoulder seam, the fabric is in a lopsided position, but you get the idea.

I have a lot of ends to weave in even though I carried the yarns up the sides. Also, I will block before attaching the sleeves, so finishing is still a ways off, but I'm getting there! Oh! I almost forgot, there is still the duplicate stitching to do as well!
