    I am soooo jealous of somebody who can make such beautiful buttonholes, great job! I assume you covered the buttons on fabric yourself? Looks really nice!

      Thanks!! Don’t worry, I regularly make a shite of them but I got a buttonhole foot for my machine recently…worth every penny!

      Yep the buttons are the ones that come in a little kit so it’s quite easy. The only downside is that the shank is kinda long so they’re very wobbly sew on :) thanks for looking!

    That’s such a pretty blouse – and I love how neat those buttonholes look!

    After reading your blog post let me say the cuffs look great too :-)
