Hey Teach cardi

This was a UFO for months...took me ages to actually sew it up. Slight modification, longer stockinette and lace on the bodice, the rest, i can't really remember.
Sachenmayer Catania yarn. About six skeins (now I have to figure out what to do with the leftover four.

I don't remember the needle size either, most probably 3 mms.

Unlike the Yarn harlot I did buttonholes all the way. Recently I've done things that buttons only partially, but this time I would like to be able to control just how many buttons I am closing.

BTW simple, but thicker than usual mother of pearl buttons.

Great pattern. I am already thinking doing it from a different color... maybe with long sleeves?
