I did it! I finally got over my buttonhole fear. My needlecord Beignet had been languishing in the UFO pile for ages but I finally decided to do it and 12 buttonholes later it was finished!It has Mustard lining to match the buttons and the butt pocket is gone! Its super comfy and is a lot more flattering than I anticipated.
I like it so much that I've already started making the second one! In that Liberty Bunting Cord! Next time though I'm making sure that I cut at least one size down it is far too big but is fine to be comfy in!
