I am late blogging about this make and it was due to the fact that (1) I did not have the right buttons, and (2) I dread making buttonholes because I couldn't get consistent buttonholes on my machine. But someone once said to me "if you have trouble doing something, keep practicing!". Good advice.
I found out that I had misinterpreted one of the steps in my sewing machine's instruction manual! Once I figured that out, I was sailing! (It's still not an automatic buttonhole function but at least I can get it to work now.)
This is the Dover Jacket by Blue Dot Patterns. I made View B with the gathered bodice. The fabric is Nani Iro double gauze.
Blue Dot Patterns I would recommend checking them out. Stitch on!
