These are the last progress pics:
I knit this lacy strip at the bottom, but unfortunately, it curls... I think I could pass a ribbon through the holes to make a little bow tie.
I made the buttonholes, but I haven't sewn the backside of the button strip in place, so they are hard to see.
I think I will add the buttons some day, just too see what it would look like with a ribbon passed through...
I'll keep you updated on this one.
