Jacket with buttons

Work, work and no play makes me a little cranky! 

First I took my sewing machine in for general tune up and got it back on Wednesday.  Put the machine on sewing table and have not had an opportunity to go to the room and actually do anything sewing related since. 

So after dinner tonight, I spent time getting my machine back in place in the sewing table; and then cut open the buttonhole and sewed the button on the jacket.  I then decided to go with my design idea of sewing smaller buttons on the collar.  Here is a photo of the jacket with buttons.  In the photo I had not sewn the buttons on the collar, but you get the idea of what it is looking like.

Tomorrow, I will pin fit the NL dress pattern and move forward with getting the fabric cut out and begin the sewing process.  So looking forward to some sewing time. 


  1. Oh, I'm loving the jacket so far. Love how the green photographed too. Green is one of my very favorite colors! Have a good sewing session this weekend!

  2. This is going to look great when it is done.

  3. Love the button placement on the dress! This is going to be a great outfit!
