I hate buttonholes. Hate them, I do them manually on my elna SU. But somehow the moons lined up and I managed to finish one of my garments to blog about today… Sometimes, just sometimes, there is magic, I didn’t mess up a single buttonhole! This is the pretty shirt pattern from A Sunny Spot japanese pattern book. The custom buttons, also in liberty lawn, are my favourite detail.
Primary modification was to eliminate the underarm seam and to cut the back and front in one piece… The sleeve elastic lace is vintage. I think this is one of my fav garments so far… I am ready for some serious sleep now though! Its been a long day!!!!
