Is this an automatic button hole stitch on your machine, or are you doing it manually?

The machine I learned to sew on didn't have a buttonhole function, so it was only about 2 years ago that I was able to do it automatically. So much easier!

It's an auto buttonhole! I may be brave, but not enough to try them manually!  Shocked

YAY!!! This is beautiful... I am even going to go as far to say, my favourite of them all  Smiley You are so clever. Are you going to keep this one or sell it?

Awww thanks so much! This one is intended for my shop (that I will open one day! ). I made it too big for my girls or I would be really tempted to keep it!

This is for a child?!? When  looked at it I thought it would be a cute long top for a woman with a pair of leggings! Did you make this from a pattern? I would like to make one for myself!

No, this is self drafted. Most of my designs are inspired by women's clothes.

OMG I just made my first sale! My shop isn't even open yet, but my friend saw this dress and loved it so much she asked if she could buy it for her daughter.  Grin I can't wait to see her in it!

kudos on the button holes and the dress is very cute. the button hole setting on my machine sucks and so therefore they are my nemesis, but I manage. good job  Smiley
