Finished the blouse today. Went to Jo Ann's and found the perfect buttons and some teal thread for sewing them on. I embroidered the button holes with an 80wt Madeira Cotona in pale blue. I didn't want the buttonholes to really stand out. Using the pale blue thread made the buttonholes blend into the background. I realize I've made the blouse a bit fancy for the class, but I'd like to inspire them to see the embellishment potential for a plain garment. Here's a couple of pictures of the finished garment.
