Progress!

It's midnight and I have finished Benjamin's blessing shirt.
I am so excited that I have this much done!
I just have to make the lined knickers and sew about 14 button and buttonholes!!!
I blocked the smocking insert.


I cut the bias strips to sew the piping.


Here is a close up of the shirt.
There is piping around the collar, the top and bottom of the smocked insert, and the sleeve cuffs.
I sewed the buttons under the ducks, aren't they cute?
I really like the knife pleats too, they add a masculine touch.


On Tuesday, I will sew the lined knickers andhopefully sew all the buttonholes.  See you then!
