School is done and I finally had time to finish my Alexander Blouse (from BurdaStyle’s pattern)! It’s got a summery picnic feel and feels light and breezy. I changed the pattern and did not put buttons on the back. I also accidentally cut the sleeve fabric on top instead of making it one continuous piece, but I sewed them back together and there is still plenty of “flowy” effect. I also got some fabric-covered-button making supplies off of etsy. What fun! I can’t stop making buttons now.
