Some people sew one garment at a time, but I like to have a couple in various stages of production. Some I am problem solving, others allow me to work on whatever part I feel like working on at a given time. Tonight I worked on bottonholes. The ones on my DS's shirt and my DGS's jacket. I only had time to sew on the buttons for the jacket. Those black buttons upped the cost of the outfit another $10.00.
