Last night I went to my holiday party and I was so happy I wore the stockings.
They matched great! And my shoes were not stained. Yay!
Onto other things.
I finally got off my butt and finished the sewing of the two tone blouse. I added the cuffs and pressed everything up nice and pretty. Now comes the fun part, choosing the buttons.
I don't know if I've ever shown you all this, but here is my button box.
Some people collect fabric, others sewing machines (wink, wink), me,
it's buttons, and I have a lot.
I wanted to see if I had any chartreuse buttons I could use that would accent that color I have in the fabric. I didn't have very many that could pass,
but I had a couple versions of it.
I'm leaning toward the set in the upper right because they will make the leaves in the fabric pop. Also, they are a good size and there is enough of them for the front of the blouse and the cuffs.
I'll be finished with it today and then I think it's day projects for the rest of the year. Perhaps another blouse, then day projects.
