Lovely jacket and a great wardrobe piece. The collar and buttonhole look so sharp... all that pressing work really paid off. Love the lining fabric too. Well done!

Your choice of lining is right on. Subtle but contrasting, it really adds to your neutral jacket. The effect is lovely. Nice job!

Your jacket looks great. I love the vintage vibe and would say the color is neutral rather than "colorless". You did a nice job piecing the lining too. Super job inside and out!

Thank all of you for such nice comments! Clareew the organza patch method for a bound buttonhole involves placing an organza patch on the right side of the fabric, stitching a rectangle the size of your buttonhole, cutting like a regular bound bh, folding to the inside and pressing, which leaves a little window in the fabric, the lips of the buttohole are two pieces of fabric basted together and pressed to form a seam in the middle, this is centered in the little window and sewn to the edges and the little triangles at the ends from behind. Basting can be used to ensure everything stays in place. I was surprised how well it worked.

"DS referred to this as a shapeless, colorless wonder" Well, I would NOT let HIM wear it... being silly here... I think your jacket looks smashing.. with all the print dresses & skirts out there, a low key but snazzy topper is in order and you have a great one in your closet. Very nice!

Not shapeless or colorless. The fabric isn't super vibrant but has interesting texture and showcases the simplicity of the pattern and the interesting button. I love it!

Lovely jacket. This is one of my favourite from Vogue. You chose a great button!

Brava! The fashion fabric, lining, and "statement" button really pull this retro look together.
