so today I finally put together my mother's "vintage" 1958 three quarter sleeve short jacket sweater (full description!)
I really hate sewing the seams.. next sweater I will try the top down, bottom up, circular needle, no-seam method... I promise!
That being said... the sweater jacket really turned out nice... stylish .. and I can really see my mom wearing it!
Tomorrow off to buy some buttons.. the ones I thought about using are too heavy - literally - they weigh more than the entire sweater! I was thinking about some glazed mother of pearl.. will have to see what I find in town
