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. :)

  2. Linda ~ its done! its done! yippeee! I can see why you loved sewing the fabric ~ the jacket is very, very pretty! Uhmmmm are you just going to review it on patternreview? Maybe Stitcher's Guild too?

  3. I got to see it in person tonight and it is beautiful material! Of course the sewing was exquisite. Ah, some day I will learn to sew as well as you Linda!

  4. Ooo .. I love the fabric too! I'll be watching for your review.

  5. Linda, this is so pretty. I love the vent detail on the sleeve.
