Buttons or no Buttons...that is the question
Miss America took this wonderful photo of the detail on Coraline - it was her idea and it was a good one. It really is a pretty smocked detail.
I haven't worn it yet and I'm having trouble getting a decent photo of me in it - below are some self timer shots in my usual self time spot. I put the camera on a large desk and run to the corner of the room.
I'm struggling whether or not to put buttons on this - you need to make your own button loops with embroidery floss (I have yet to get to Michael's to see if they have it). I don't mind that as I'm clever enough to make it work but the loops would require the top ALWAYS be buttoned.
As you can see after blocking it looks okay unbuttoned - there is a little flip on one side which I think a quick steam would settle down.
I think I'll wear it today while teaching and see if the flip bothers me and if I feel the need for buttons.
Would love any button input - buttons or no buttons?
