Below, I show my project on the floor. Yes, I hate that as much as you and I know it’s hard to tell what it looks like. But, let’s all remember what happened to my dressform….
Well, I’m nearly done with the Patrones blouse. But, I can’t make a stupid buttonhole to save my life. After making seven in one spot and ripping each and every one out, I’m taking a break. I imagine it’s something with the tension. Plus, the fabric has some stretch and keeps moving all over the place making uneven buttonholes. Maybe I’ll just use snaps instead. Stupid buttonholer.
At any rate, I think I’m going to use the pale pink buttons, but I do love the way the big red ones (a gift from NiceGirl) look. I dunno. Again, at this point I’d use a hot glue gun to close this shirt.
Gah. I have to be at work in a little bit. I’ll fool around with this later. Makes me wanna throw my machine out the window. Luckily, it’s about 30 pounds so I can’t. But, I will show you the labels I’ve been using the past few years.
I forget to put these on clothes more often than I remember to add them. But, I remembered during the collar construction. They are from R. Draper & Co Apparel Labels in Australia. They ship to the US at reasonable rates.
