The v-neck top I'm making has an interesting sleeve detail - a tab that comes from INSIDE the sleeve, out the arm-side, and buttons on top of the shoulder. Cuteness, right? What is my idea to avoid the dreaded buttonhole this time?
A lace tab! This is the narrower lace I've been working on since I finished the Cluny lace a few weeks ago. Here's a close-up:
I've got about 7.5" right now - and according to the pattern piece (which I've already folded neatly and put back in the envelope) I need 13" for each tab. I'll use a dark brown button at the shoulder so it has a nice contrast. Now, there's no telling when the garment will be finish-finished if I have to wait for the lace to be done, because my stitching schedule is kind of tight. I may (MAY) have to put off starting a new piece (gasp!) until it's done.
