Liberty IV--Complete!

The results are in, and the themed buttons are the winner! However, I've decided to go with the second choice, the red crystals. I really like the theme buttons but in the end, I decided that they should be a feature when I use them. I'm envisioning a solid color shirt in a Southwestern color like turquoise or rose. I do appreciate all the feedback though, it really helped me think about what I wanted to do!

I had to take a little break from the shirt due to fall cleanups. DH had the carpet cleaner in and of course, that meant everything in the house got moved around and then had to be reorganized.

I am taking a little staycation this week with my last two unscheduled days of the year, so I had some time yesterday to finish it up.

Collar detail:

Front with buttons:

In real life, the buttons are a little bit more colorful and more sparkly. As I mentioned before, the themed buttons are great but I wanted something a bit more quiet. 

Oh, and pardon the cat fur. The perils of a black shirt with a white cat in the house! I will get a picture of me in the top as soon as I am able, but I assure you that I am happy with this look. It looks better on me than on the form which is always a good thing.

Oh, my goodness! I just looked at this shirt again and realized how perfectly the fronts match. "Motel Court" is lined up absolutely perfectly. Great job!

The buttons look perfect, and the shirt has turned out beautifully. I love it!
