so i created this from scratch.. lol i wish i had JOODITO's talents for the neck on things, cuz i want a shirt like her's SOOOOO BAD!!  but here is something i made a week or so ago.. i havent been making many clothes lately.. too involved in swaps hahaha

i covered the buttons with white fabric, and the 'piping' i cut off a polka dot skirt and sewed it all together like basting tape stuff.

close up of the collar(i just learned how to make button holes, so this one is crap. lol)  

close up of the end of the sleeve

I think that's really cute! Nice job, I never managed to learn how to make buttonholes...

Awesome job! I love the binding Cheesy

I think that's really cute! Nice job, I never managed to learn how to make buttonholes...


Hmm..well I was frightened of buttonholes, but I use my Mum's Bernina Special 1000 (I don't know how old it is, probably over 16 years old though!)
I just read the booklet, and with Mum's machine for buttonholes you just draw a line, click all the buttonhole settings in and then spin the knob around as it sews. Then you slice the slit with a seam ripper Cheesy
God, I'm patronising, but is there something I'm missing? Do most machines not have automatic buttonhole settings, or are they just too complex that they're too hard to work out?
I actually find buttonholes easier than a zipper now.
