For some reason, I got the big idea to machine sew the sweater together. I had recently gotten my Bernina, which is still in use today, and it has a stitch that is somewhat like a serger.
My mom gave the sweater back to me, as it doesn't fit any more. A little too tight in the hips, now. Let's face it, who has the same body after two decades? I still think the sweater looks modern, maybe just a change of button to freshen it up. It won't fit me either, unfortunately.
Pictures to follow, but the linen Rosebud is complete and will make her debut today. I love it.
