Anyway, the pattern was fairly easy to sew and one of the main reasons I wanted to do it was because it called for buttonholes and I haven't done those in a very long time and I wanted to start practicing - my daughter has never made them. Not a good idea to practice on a gift, but I made the buttonholes about a half dozen times before I did the real thing. Wow, I couldn't believe how easy it was! Maybe I can start sewing up shirts!! I love this fabric, and she has some leftover, so maybe I'll able to squeeze a purse out of the deal.
I love today, it was rainy, windy, a little overcast and then sunny. It was perfect day to be home alone sewing and listening to the radio. Hmmm, what can I sew tomorrow . . .
