It's supposed to be coming up from the South and will be here by tomorrow.
I've been working on my Magnolia Pearl inspired doilie and old lace blouse for the last two weekends.
The main hold up was getting the covered buttons and the button holes done.
My old bernina is a bit random for buttonholes, and requires the mastering of about 26 steps to complete each one.
Hubby asked if it was meant not to meat up at the bottom.
Honestly! I just raised my eyebrows and explained that it was like shabby chic painted furniture, and he just raised his right back.
But he got it.
Meanwhile he's converted The Granny into a motor racing devotee. She's been watching the Trolley Derby in the Auckland Domain and killing herself laughing!
She reckons it's the best thing she's seen since Judge Judy!!!!
This is the little book I bought in Canberra with all the vintage inspired tops and dresses in it.
Couldn't wait to try it out.
And they work!
And the instructions are very simple, and it looks like the sizing is spot on too.
I just add all my own stuff in a random manner till it looks right to me.
