I still made 10 thread buttons for it, even though it's probably weird to have handmade thread buttons with machine buttonholes. I found a greyish blue linen yarn in Mama's stash that matched my blue flannel fairly closely, and I used that on small plastic rings.
It turned out I had somehow marked the cuff slit on the wrong edge of my pattern pieces, and so had sewn the sleeve closure on the wrong side. It was on top of the wrist and looked terrible, besides being much more awkward to button!
|The two wrist buttonholes are by hand, because they're right on a join between two pieces.|
It's less warm than the other one, because the flannel is thinner and less fuzzy, but it's still quite comfortable. Here are two badly lit photos of me wearing it. The lighting was mush better in person, but the camera was being foolish.
Hopefully I'll get some more flannel things sewn this year, especially nightgowns. I really need to make more nightgowns.
