I think I did a pretty good job of matching plaids~especially for my very first time.
It does have kind of a funky collar. Very retro. I think I might redraft this and do the traditional collar here.
I think I will do the cuffs, pocket and yoke on the bias when I do the real shirt.
All in all I am quite pleased with this shirt. It feels like a huge accomplishment, especially with the way my back has been lately. I can't wait to get started on the new shirt.
The Griest Buttonholer did not work out. It was the wrong one, which I only found out after following all the directions for getting it in and then realized it was for a low shank machine. I have a slant-shank. I had to haul my other machine out and get it all set with new thread...la, la, la...but I am happy I did, because I have a vest I made for Miss Moll Doll which just needs buttons and I can get that done today or tomorrow.
I am also going to order my yarn for the knit-a-long with My Gum, by Golly
Sending love to all on this day of 'hearts'
