Mom-Made Blouse!

My mommy made me this blouse from a vintage pattern. It is really cute with brown and white polka dots. She gave it to me to add the buttonholes, since her machine makes it a pain. So after sewing club today, I came home and watched Netflix (1st season of a hilarious HBO show "Hung") and made the button holes (6) and sewed on the buttons.
Isn't it cute?
I bought these buttons for it at Jo-Ann. They are a similar shade of brown, don't let the flash on the camera fool you. They also remind me of the Eye of Sauron from the Lord of the Rings.

On an aside, sewing club was fun. It was four girls from my honor's class and one very enthusiastic girl from my 7th period class. They are all wonderful. At this point, they all know how to use the Necchi and sew a straight seam, and to pin correctly. One girl finished her pajama shorts, two finished their headbands, and two are almost finished with headbands. Yay! Next time, we are going to make a pattern for a messenger bag!

Thanks, mom for the cute blouse! I'll try to get some in-person pictures soon!
