I finished my Jenny Cardigan (from Rowan Magazine 37) in early July but never got around to wearing it.
I very rarely find buttons that match a finished project. I have the same problem with fabric – I tend to choose colors that are impossible to find matching thread, zippers, and buttons.
But I have found a solution, at least for the buttons, right here on BurdaStyle. The recent blog entry about Dorset Buttons was just what I needed. I am able to cover plastic rings with the yarn that I used for my sweater, ensuring that they will be a perfect match!
The dress is an oldie. I happened to come across it hiding in the closet, and thought it would be the perfect backdrop for my new cardigan. The pattern is Vogue 9668, now out of print, by it looks like it is still available on the Vogue website. It is a contemporary pattern, but has a definite vintage flair.
More information may be found over at my blog, Lilacs & Lace.
