VOGUE 2615 –

There is a blog that I read called “Feel the Fear and Sew it Anyway ”  http://sewitanyway.wordpress.com  written by Tania who seems pretty fearless anyway. It is such a good mantra that I think I ought to have it tattooed somewhere. As has been said many times – it’s only fabric not world peace.  So I started to prepare for the buttonholes. There’s only three so what’s the problem? The fact that OOPs doesn’t just stand for Out of Print patterns. And in true Blue Peter tradition -here’s one I made much earlier as illustration. These buttonholes I am not proud of – the reason why this jacket is not worn a great deal, and if I remember rightly I didn’t prepare properly and paid the price.

So today I am preparing…I’ve done a zillion one or two practice pieces, using different methods until I found one I liked ;- I replaced the buttonhole markings – the yellow tramlines are in yellow = the width of the buttonhole, the bottom two are in white and the top in yellow so as not to compromise the balance line when I come to remove the tacking – so here we go, onward and upward.
