Sorry...that's my silly way of saying my jacket is done. LOL. I'm so pleased with this pattern and the resulting jacket. I will make it again; not this year but possibly in a year or so. I'd like to add a couple of things next time around. I'd love to add an inside pocket to the lining and a hanging chain. I totally meant to add one this time, but just forgot. Shrug. There's always next time, right?
This is how I chose to sew on my large snaps this time. It's very secure and you can sew it from the top side of the garment.
After seeing this picture, I suppose you've guessed I chose to use decorative buttons and functional snaps. These snaps are large, about the size of a quarter.
HA! You didn't think you'd get to see me did you? LOL. Well I grabbed Alan from his shop and made him get a few shots this time.
Love this coat!!!! I think the length is right for me, the style isright for my laid back lifestyle with the fiber content (wool & cashmere) making it a little luxurious and the color is yummy. And it only took about 2 weeks of off and on sewing to complete it.
No, I don't have a stomach ache; that's my normal face squinting into the sun. LOL. These aren't great shots and we were hurrying because we were loosing the late afternoon sun.
