Long ago, my sister-in-law mentioned “The Five Love Languages” and ever since I’ve wondered where cooking and sewing shirts for someone fall into that categorization. I think it means I really, really love Doc, right? If he’s on his fourth shirt, he has to be doing something right. 🙂
Details: The trusty McCalls M6044 pattern; Anna Maria Horner “Loominous” fabric. Sewn for our anniversary…which was in April.
This time around I got some tools to make life easier, since I was really unhappy with uneven buttonholes on the last two shirts I’d made (my machine doesn’t have an automatic feature). So I found a manual buttonhole foot on eBay that makes it so much easier to get consistent ones. While I was there, I got an expanding buttonhole gauge to make marking them easier, and a tiny half-inch chisel and cutting mat to cut them open from Amazon. (Credit to the Closet Case Files blog for clueing me in all these things exist.)
