75 hours without power...I greatly appreciate being able to cook dinner, drink a cold beverage, take a hot shower and sleep in a/c. It was hot, it was boring and I had to through away so much food. Very depressing. I literally have 3 bottles of hot sauce, mustard, a half of a bottle of sangria and 2 Smirnoffs left in my refrigerator. Wow.
But it's back and live can resume to normal.
I made this adorable little shirt for my niece a few months ago but I was too chicken to try to make a button hole. Last week before the power went out, I was working on another top and decided it was time to finish this one!
The original pattern from the One Yard Wonders book has these giant bell sleeves--I didn't really like them and I didn't really have enough fabric for them anyway. Apparently some of the "one yards" are 60 inch and some of 44 inch wide and I didn't look before I started and I was supposed to use a bigger width. So I modified.
Now for the button holes...
You may have noticed that under the buttons, there is an opening. This is the "O Tunic" from the book and it calls for that opening. I don't know how I feel about it. Yes, she is only a little girl and has no boobs--but should I be promoting that kind of outfit? Hmmm, I don't know. Wonder what my sister will think?
Welll she needed a matching hair bow. Duh.
