My second blog for the Minerva Craft Bloggers Network went live today. A lovely dress for my wife Lu and ready for the festive season coming soon.
Sneak peek but click here for the full writeup.
I bought some buttons before I started the make. Lovely wooden ones similar to the style from Lu’s Hacking Jacket. I hoped they would pick out the yellow in the wool. Now I’ve made the buttonholes I’m not sure they work…
I tried some other, more conventional buttons as well. What do you think?
This jacket is my effort at being a bit more “Couture” and after working the boutonniere
I added a small loop behind to hold the stem of a flower….
Couture or what!
Right time for the lining so until next time…Happy sewing
