Yeah, it's done!

The project is complete! Here are photos-the jacket, close up of the sleeve vent and topstitching and of one button.

The buttons I used I acquired from Hancock Fabrics. They look somewhat like a basket weave. I thought the color was great and in my mind palm tree leaves can be used to weave baskets, thus the buttons.






I said this before but I truly loved sewing this fabric. I am currently write a review of the pattern for Pattern Review. I should post it sometime in the next few days. Be sure to view it and if is very helpful, please rate it as such.

  1. Oh nice detail Linda! And I love fabric with a texture to it too. I think it makes it nicer to sew. Nice touch with the basket weave buttons. Little things like that make a big difference. I'll bet you get lots of compliments. :)
