It hard to see, but I found buttons in my stash that match the flowers in the dress..same shapes. And I also put them on the back too.
This was a very easy pattern, but I revised it a little. The armholes had facings. Who needs facings flopping around on a little baby? So, I cut them to 1/2" wide and stitched them down. Also the pattern called for the neck facing to be sewn on - right sides together, then turned under 1/4" and stitched down from the inside. The bobbin thread showed on the outside and was a little uneven, so I did it reversed, stitching it down - straight - on the outside. Does that make sense? Hope so.
Ok, now what next?
Oh yeah, the female attorney I worked with asked me to make new a dress and jacket. I will start posting pics on my progress soon....wish me luck!
