It's finished! My first shirt like this! And I am quite certain there will be many more to come. Levi was gawking at himself all day, and pleased to tell anyone and everyone where he'd gotten that shirt!
Doing the button-holes by hand wasn't that bad. I know you're supposed to do the stitching and then slit the hole open, but it's at least twice as fast to use one of my favorite running stitches to outline the hole, slash it open, and then do the button-hole stitching. So that's what I did!
Well, there's more fabric waiting to be cut, and Narnia waiting to be read, so I better go! Have a great day, wherever you are!
