    Wow finally finished the Hide and Seek. It looks great and so professional. I didn’t have an automatic buttonhole on my machine, so wondering if it will be quicker to add a zipper to the back yoke? Anyone done this?

    I haven’t done a zipper in the back yoke but I did add one to the front instead of the button back.

    I suspect t it will be much more difficult to add a zip to an already finished bodice than to modify the pattern and add one from scratch.

    I’ve also made buttonholes for years on a machine without a bottonhole foot, just the regular foot and the 4 step buttonhole program. I’ve also made buttonholes with a dense zigzag stitch, regular foot and no program. I was very fortunate to learn to sew early on from my Mum and never realised that buttonholes were suppose to be difficult 🙂
    Although on that note I rarely use buttons now as I have a large snap press. So unless it’s a very special garment it gets snaps rather than buttons.

    Wow Heidi. Love the warmer look with the hoodie and zip.

    I did find a tutorial in the Building Block Dress so will try that
