Candlewick & Roses...Done!!!
Well...it took me a couple of days to finish the buttons and buttonholes. Did the buttonholes first. Btw, did I ever say I always embroider my buttonholes now? Oh gads! Its sew much easier! Then I marked the corresponding locations for the buttons. Don't you hate it when you purchase a great blouse and then it gapes in the front? Grrrrr. Ever since I started noticing that happening, I've been moving the dang locations for buttons. Now no more gaping.
This really is a great pattern. I can see myself making this several times before getting bored with it.
Each button has a rose bud hand embroidered into it. I thought adding this bit of hand embroidery made it touch more feminine without going over the top. I really hate phoofy. Is that even a word? LOL.
