My lovely friend Theresa went to Tasmania for a weekend and brought me back three wonderful Huon pine buttons. Inspired by this fantastic new acquisition, I decided to go on the hunt for a pattern that could show off my new little friends.
I decided on a pinafore-ish pattern by burda young fashion #7739 and combined it with a scandalously red coat fabric, and an outfit is born.
It’s starting to get cold down here in the Southern hemisphere and this lil’ number and I are going to be the best of friends.
My lovely new Huon pine buttons love their new home.
