Errata:

  1. Pattern does not say when to sew shoulder seams together. Sew together before starting button band.
  2. Pattern says to put back stitches on hold but never mentions those stitches again. Then you’re supposed to sew button band onto apparently live stitches. Bind off stitches instead so you can sew the button band on.
