It's easy to see why fellow Ravelers enjoyed this pattern and many have stated that they are sure to make it again. There are, however, some areas in which you are left to figure it out on your own. Anyone who has made a sweater (especially one with a placket) could figure it out easily enough.
I thought that I'd "push" the "easy button" and use snaps and faux buttons as it were. If I ever make it again, I would go ahead and make the button holes. Using snaps causes you to spend more money, and do more work. Sewing them on was pretty time consuming. Each snap has 6 stinkin' holes around it and you have to sew two pieces for every snap. It turned out well and I'm happy to have a finished item this many days out from the shower.
I plan to make onesie cookies for the shower, I guess I will have to take them off of my "I'll Never Do This Again" list. LOL. Just the reason, I try never to say never.
Have a super day!!
