These little pieces are so very satisfying.
This one was a bit of a challenge mostly because I am not at home. I brought my sweet Featherweight with me. But no serger. No rotary cutting. No automatic buttonholes. No tube turning devices. Hmmm... I seem to need lots of stuff.
So I improvised. That's what we sewers do, right?
I played with making quasi-bound-buttonholes. I made a few samples which gave me a false sense of competence. So then I wrecked the first one on the actual garment. I do not have my super sharp little scissors and so I managed to cut the sewn threads.
Easy to correct - just sew it again. But - it became huge and ugly.
Luckily I had enough fabric to cut this away and replace it with a strip of fabric.
And I actually like my buttonhole alternative better than buttonholes.
