very professional looking jacket, lovely style and fit on you! Clever of you to have the option to make bows for a different look, I like it the way it is too.

Great looking jacket. Like how you handled the buttonholes. I like the look of the jacket without the bows.

Thank you all very much for your comments - Kathyw, the buttonholes are done by hand. Sorry about the H&S website - it's a very old-fashioned place and they would never dream of selling online!

Lovely jacket; I really like the fabric. I was disappointed to go to the H&S website and not see any way to order by internet--it all looked so good! But I also like how your keyhole buttonholes turned out--were they machine or hand?
