Yesterday I finished Miss E's woolly version of the Oliver+s Class Picnic blouse.
Today I put the finishing touches to Miss Z's.
|The elastic casing|
As I was using a woollen knit fabric,I omitted the separate bias casing and extended the sleeve piece by a inch at the top,folded this over and sewed it to make the casing.
This worked very well.
Miss Z thought it a little plain.
|Miss Z sans specs|
I suggested some painted mother of pearl buttons.
Miss Z suggested a random sprinkle of mother of pearl buttons.
So here we have it,a random sprinkle of buttons,stitched in black,orange and cream.
