More little stuff

Here is the pattern I got the sleeve from. I had to search through all my patterns to find one. I've gotten rid of a lot of patterns so this is THE only short sleeve I have. It's a fun, vintage pattern I probably bought at a garage sale.

I spent good money on buttons. But not much! I like the shank buttons. They're shiny and very black, like little eyes! They'll show up much better than matte buttons with holes. The seam binding is for the bottoms of the sleeves. I'm toying with the idea of a ruffle around the bottom, too.

And this is the lovely salad I had today. I tried to copy the one I ate at Chili's the other night and I think I did pretty well. I couldn't eat it fast enough!

I spent a good part of the day dealing with the Navy. They're not real welcoming to homeschooled kids. They're putting us through hoops. And I had to study today. So no sewing.

  1. I absolutely love vintage patterns. Despite the fact that I can't even thread a needle, I find myself buy patterns at times just because I adore them!! :)
