What was I thinking?
I had something even better!
I had some great one-on-one time with Youngest Son!
We hung out, ate bad for us food, and watched some movies.
|The pocket pieces for 4 pockets.|
|Pocket flap--thread traced, basted interfacing and right sides|
basted--ready to be machine stitched
The progress on this has been slow. I didn't make a muslin. I thread basted all of the markings because there is no lining. I might change that if I can't pretty it up a little.
|I must really be trusting to put this out in public!|
This is my hideous buttonhole. No where near my sample.
There is a lot of hand stitching and the I love the techniques. I just don't have the patience right now after just finishing my LWD less than two weeks ago. I have even cheated a little.
|Buttonhole hole, basted shut|
|Buttonhole stitched over basted hole.|
|Buttonhole completed--It still needs to be trimmed.|
After all the basting and stitching, I have the four pockets finished, two basted pleats and two front tucks.
I now need a break before working on the front where I will be working on the roll line and some pad stitching. I'm starting to wonder if I will get this done this week.
