Doing the Rachael! I copied the pattern from a blouse I loved , but had worn to death. I should do a close up of the buttons, because I stacked the wee red vintage ones on top of larger pale green- Coke bottle green- buttons. The fabric was already embroidered.

It was really difficult to work with black. I've never had good vision, but this was tough. Maybe age. Time to get new specs, I guess.

Yes, the picture shows my large self. I'm going to try and live with that. It's actually very flattering, in person, but nothing is flattering enough to make me look skinny.

Wow, wish I could do that. Well done! I've been having fantasies of resurrecting my favorite tencel jumper that way.
