This is Gertie's Bowtied Blouse pattern Courtney and I made. It came out very very small in the neck. I added an inch back by letting out the sleeve seam. It's a 34 or size 4 and really very tiny. This beautiful red fabric has a stretch to it and I put on covered buttons and made button holes with my trusty 47 Singer and button hole maker. A perfect button hole each time I love it! My newer Swedish machine is very unpredictibe on button holes, you can be going along making a couple then it decides to put legs on them or 'extensions' ! Very frustrating. Gertie's patterns too are very frustrating for us. I made the red lace mentioned below over 3 times and gave up and threw in the towel.
This image above I printed off and glued it on an orange ribbon which I will lay on each plate with a name written on the pumpkin for name place cards at our Thanksgiving table. We're having 7 guests plus us and maybe two more I won't know until the deadline of the hour before. I will be setting up an additional table and scrounging chairs around here! The boys will be on their best behavior in a large crowd.
