what i've learned

converting a sleeveless into a sleeve entails a lot more that raising necklines and adding sleeves.
you sometimes end up with a gaping back neck and that extra fabric has to be taken out by adding a dart. but then the back gets tight and you have to slash it to create extra fabric for ease without affecting the armscye .
 so in the end this came out a little tight,but it's going to act as an incentive for losing  kilos.
the buttons are problematic.the ones i found were the right size and shiny texture as i wanted, but i'm afraid they're too heavy .im in a wait & see mode about them.

"Every one of us is losing something precious to us. Lost opportunities, lost possibilities, feelings we can never get back again. That’s part of what it means to be alive."

between boring and cool

the difference is more work.worthwhile though.
this is medium to light felt, no facings . but the raw edge looks kind of blah so i am edge stitching the neck and's going to take me longer than planned and the stitching needs to be even.concentration, a masking tape guide and hitting the pedal lightly. it is going to look good after all.
