I love it when a plan comes together. I worked on my Edwardian tablecloth shirt most of Saturday afternoon. The sewing saints were smiling on me and the sleeves went in with not one stitch needing to be undone!
I am very pleased with how well they are hanging!
The collar looks pretty good I think. I do wonder how it will fare with my double chin. Even starched to cardboard consistency, it may succumb to the pressure.
I pinned up the back to see how it looks. The pattern matching went well.
It seems a bit on the snug side. There will be gapes. Hmmm.
I think I will put buttons every inch rather than every 2 inches like the pattern suggests. That may help. If not, I will put some hooks in between. Hubby with his clumsy man hands will love helping me with that!
The buttons, button holes and optional hooks are all that is left. I have it in my mind that I want little pearl buttons. The stash doesn’t have those. I may have to do some Sunday shopping to get some. The button holes have to wait until I know the size of the buttons or those would be done by now as well.
