I made this shirt to go under my new jumper. I ran into a snag when I made horrendous-looking buttonholes on one side. I knew I could either take it all out and start again or throw the whole thing away… but then I had an idea! I took some cherry quilting cotton and sewed it onto the goofed-up side and covered up the nasty buttonholes! Even though it buttons up on the wrong side, I’m still pretty proud of my boo-boo-fixer idea.
