Crabby Nantucket Rubys

West Orange, New...






I did the Rubys as a Sew Along on my blog (http://vintageorbust.blogspot.com/2010/07/epic-ruby-post.html). 3 out of 5 of us finished them!
I love love love mine and wear them all the time. The only thing wrong with them is they ended up being too big so next time I will make a size smaller. Rather than doing real buttonholes I did giant snaps with decorative buttons. Easy on, easy off! I also flat-lined mine because the fabric was so thin and see-through.
They are supposed to be worn cuffed but I left them un-cuffed so I can wear them to work.

Material Notes

quilters cotton, buttons, snaps




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Beach, Casual, Preppy

      Surprisingly, I got it at JoAnn’s in their novelty prints collection at the end of spring. They also did it in fleece, I think.
