26 days after my muslin, I am finally posting a few photos of my Hawthorne, I have more on my Flickr page.
After looking at what seems like hundreds of fabric samples (and buttons!), I finally decided on a Hugo Boss shirting that is a really surprising mix of charcoal grey and dark purple. It is a great weight and drapes well. It looks kind of plain but when you get up close, look
This photo of the cuff on my 3/4 sleeve really showcases the beauty of this fabric close up and the button. They are actually clear but pick up the colors of the pattern and I think dress it up and make it more feminine.
I did a “patch” method bound buttonhole,,,wow, a lot of work but I learned a lot from this process. I had a copy of Threads magazine that really clearly stepped me through this special buttonhole process, this probably took me two days off and on! My thumb looks really weird–sorry for that!
