Seamless Yoke is done


It took a little longer than expected to do the buttonbands. I made myself slow down to do them just right. Then to tack down the steeked sections with a nice even herringbone stitch. I steamed it a bit, but will hold off on a full wet blocking for now. I didn't get the top button in the exact spot needed, so I put in a snap. Overall, I really like it, especially after learning so many new techniques.

Now, if it would only cool down here in San Diego, so I could wear it!
