Butterick 8097 Blouse

Well, what I thought would be an easy first finish for March turned out to be slightly more complicated. I’d already taken the cuff buttons off as I couldn’t get the sleeve done up and all the way up my arm!!

I had already worked out what was wrong, the button should surely have been put on the funny little sticky out bit but I thought I had better check the pattern instructions. I was right the button did go on the sticky out bit, unfortunately I’d also put the button hole on the wrong part of the cuff, doh!!

So after unpicking the cuff, cutting out a new pair and stitching them to the sleeves what started off as a 5 minute job took me about an hour.

Now just off to take the zip out of the pinstripe skirt I didn’t leave enough space to attached the waist band, another Doh!!
