The jacket is lovely! Your blog describes so well your steps ; the bias strip for a sleeve cap is so clever. The amount of fullness that was eased in is amazing. The double collar adds such a nice touch. Very helpful photos!

What a lot of work but such a perfect result. I even photocopied your bias insertion method for the sleeve caps for reference. I am pleased I am not the only one who buys several sets of buttons for the one project - another stash in the making!
