What are you most proud of? While I am really proud of the shirt overall.....However....I was stunned and disappointed today as I was sewing on the buttons to discover that I had marked one of the buttonholes wrong so the spacing is off. I just wanted to cry, after all my careful hard work, checking and double checking....how on earth did I manage to do that? Well.....what can you do....I went ahead and finished it, I hope that I will not be making that mistake again.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go for it! Pam is such a wonderful teacher and I will watch this class again. Also, be sure to check all of your buttonhole spacing for accuracy before cutting! Most of all have fun and as Pam says, "Enjoy the process"! :0) Jill

Hi Pam ... really like your shirt. I didn't even notice the buttons till I read your text. I have made 11 shirts so far from this class and in every one I have made some error - which like yours is pretty un noticable at the end.

Very nice. Your pocket flaps are perfect!

nice shirt. i made a similar mistake at the last step too. When I cut the buttonhole open, I cut past the buttonhole's end and it was in the middle and the center of the shirt. I wasted all my hard work! I really wanted to cry.

Will I be able to make buttonholes on my machine if I take this course? Will I also be able to watch the video anytime I want.
