I've got buttons!

I am so happy

I found more buttons. I went to JoAnn's near my office which is the other side of town if you lived here in Roanoke. I went straight to the buttons section and found more of the same buttons. I have to tell you that these buttons were off from my original ones; but they were not the red color of the other buttons that did not match the first two I that I had sewn onto the jacket previously. So I found two cards of the same color and yes that they matched up well with my fabric swatch so did a little happy dance and then bought them.

I sewed them onto the jacket last night. Here are two photos of the completed jacket. Forgive my goofy expression and the washed out look but Monday was another difficult day at the office.

  2. Love this, and such a great color on you, too!

    Did you take some of the fullness out of the sleeves, or did you use the pattern as it was? (Sorry, maybe you posted about this already and I just missed it.)

    Wonderful work.
