I persuaded the missus to drive me into town to buy buttons. A short jaunt, which involved many flights of stairs because the carpark was RAMMED!
I chose some buttons, then some more buttons, then some buttons for the other thing, then some spare cover-it-yourself buttons. YAY BUTTONS! I also got a bag/purse frame, because it was there, and why not?
Over to the wondrous Singer buttonholer, and four large buttonholes later, here we are. On to the next projects! Progress should be good, as I’ve just been signed off work again, and as long as my increased dose of beta-blockers doesn’t make me TOO outrageously drowsy, I have plenty of sewing to keep me happy and relaxed.
That’s it with the black elastic belt…
…and here with the red one.
It’s completely mad, the sleeves and collar are VAST, but it gives me a shape, even without a corset, which is nice!
Now for the bloomers…
