Waikerie Shirt Test

I gave the automatic button hole on my very basic Brother sewing machine just one more go, and finally managed to end up with something consistent enough to risk trying on actual clothes! I finally put buttons on 3 shirts that were otherwise fully made, that were part of my testing for a forthcoming Muna… Continue reading Waikerie Shirt Test
