The green handwoven fabric is a bit too blue, and not at all olive, so it is hard to decide what thread to use for the buttonholes. Nothing at the store looked just right, so I didn't get anything yet. But they had a Rowenta iron for half price - so even though some reviews said it doesn't last long and spits, I bought one and we shall see how it works. I hope it is as steamy and dreamy as the good reviews! I'll let you know. And I'll get a photo just as soon as the buttonholes get done.
