So, now on to looking forward to that other period extravaganza, Downton Abbey, Season Three. OK, I was far less enamoured with Season Two than Season One--too much happening in too short a space of time, but nonetheless, it's riveting, if for nothing other than the clothes.
I took Megan, a lovely neighbour, out for some photos last December, when we hadn't any snow. Can you tell why she's a drama student?
There are a couple of different ways to configure the buttons on this design. See how it makes a difference in how the neckline lies?
Here's a closeup of the cuff detail. This design is all about the buttons. I was lucky enough to find one which was available in several sizes. FYI, it's a replica of an 18thC Russian coin (at least that's what I think it is, from the 2-headed eagle) from Dill Buttons. I just happened to find them at my LYS.
Have you noticed that old houses were usually designed to look good from all angles, not just the front? A good sweater design should work in the same way.
Just as good going as coming.
