It’s done!!! I’m so happy to get this done and it will definitely augment the work wardrobe nicely. I am going to make some more of these once I find some fabric that I really like. The hardest part of this one was actually the buttonholes!! I decided on these really pretty shank type buttons that matched very closely. When I made the buttonholes with my buttonhole foot, they were all too small! I have never had that happen before so I think it’s (maybe) due to these being a shank type button. I found a button that was a little bigger and made some samples and it worked okay. I really wish I would have used the even slightly larger button because these are tight to button and un-button. That’s ok though b/c this shirt is loose enough that I really don’t ever need to undo the buttons; I can easily get the blouse on over my head. This pattern went together like a champ…I need to do a review on it.
I think next up is going to be a couple of quick tees in some nice muted colors…my basics wardrobe needs to be supplemented a bit. 🙂
I find that because I have signed up for the RTW fast this year, I’m being particularly picky about what I do choose to sew and it has slowed down my sewing. Is anyone else finding that or am I the only one??
