Travelers Rest, ...
I thought this blouse was so cute, but totally wasn’t looking forward to finishing curved seams on my straight stitch only machine or doing handmade buttonholes. I really struggled with the facing/collar instructions b/c I realize now that my collar shouldn’t overlap itself. I also put the sleeves on backward. However, I adore the result and would totally try it again. Maybe I’d even do the ruffles :D
Cotton Eyelet, Buttons, Thread
Mom’s old fabric stash; I’m going to love it to death :D This is the remainder of the daisy eyelet used to make my Daisy dress and coat. I guess I should make buttonholes for that now too…
