I was worried about sewing the buttonholes on jersey as my first practice ones didn’t turn out well. I retested them by also adding interfacing to be identical in thickness to the dress and had much better success. I always hold my breath stitching buttonholes on the finished garment & am pleased to say all 4 turned out perfectly.
Take care when ironing the fabric as I burnt a small hole in the belt – first time in 50 years of sewing!!
I love the finished dress, shown here with white pumps for a casual look. It is certainly a dress that I would feel comfortable wearing all day for a wedding and could change from heals to the pumps later in the day for comfort – I just need a bit of colour in my legs now 🤣.
