I decided to take a shot at this Built by You pattern (well, a fusion of the 2 styles) after seeing this beautiful blouse by Nadinoo, though my attempt at fabric covered buttons was a humiliating failure. In the end, I tore the fabric off and left the buttons to shine in all their shameless, silver glory. Hussies.
On the upside, this project reconciled me with the button hole function on my sewing machine. I'm sorry I ever said one bitchy word against you, my dear, dear friend!
