I have had these in my mind, ever since I saw this picture.
I picked up this sweater on a thrift store outing, knowing that it would be perfect.
When thinking about how to finish the edges, my brilliant friend Courtney (who, by the way, takes the most amazing photographs) suggested lining them. Well, lucky me, just last weekend I found a blue jersey knit sheet at a thrift store, and it worked perfectly.
For the first time, I tried to use my button-hole-maker on my sewing machine…. but this was definitely not the project to choose for my first time button-holeing (yes, that just became a verb). The fabric was very thick and wouldn’t move, so I just used a zig-zag stitch to make my own (terrible) button-hole.
