Butterfly print cotton fabric, sunflower buttons
What was your inspiration?
Butterflies! I just love them, even in print form! I found this beautiful cotton fabric on sale at Hancock Fabrics which was perfect for the pattern I've had in my stash for a while (circa 1994.)
What are you most proud of?
I finished it! and it fits! it turned out very cute, even if it is a little juvenile for me.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This project was pretty easy, but practice your buttonholes first on scrap fabric. I used a cute sunflower button that was a little larger than indicated on the pattern's notions list, and I'm glad I did some sample buttonholes first, because I did have to make them bigger to accommodate the buttons I chose.
