I used to sew all the time, mostly for my children when they were little. I have found a new love of sewing for myself thanks to Lotta Jansdotter and Grainline Studio’s patterns. But, frankly, I had forgotten how fun it is to sew little things!
Yesterday, I managed to put together a Geranium for Genevieve – it is almost complete but for buttonholes and a hem.
Buttonholes… yeah. It’s been a good long time since I have done any buttonholes on anything (save for knitting!!)
I need to clean out the cobwebs by doing a few practice buttonholes before attempting them for real.
But, I love the simple but really awesome details of this little pattern! I was worried the flutter sleeves would be hard, but they were so easy and are so cute!
I found some buttons in my Nana’s button box but I am undecided on which buttons to use… thoughts?
