I'm not a fan of the Channel style jackets but this one is gorgeous with the contrast between the two fabrics.

Amazing jacket! The fabric looks wonderful and the trim is a real attention getter against this fabric.

It's inspiring to see your creation. I've never seen the original, but when I first saw yours I thought it should be on a model on a runway. Beautiful execution. Thank you for sharing.

Sharon, no they are machine made buttonholes, the fabric would not allow much else. Even then had to I use fusible interfacing and silk underlining under the buttonholes... I promise to wear the jacket when you and your sister come to Hong Kong :D
