Janice, I loved all your pictures. I didn't see a review by you of your Stretch 'n Sew wrap dress. I like that pattern, and the dress you made is very pretty!

Diane....Why did you have to put a inverted back pleat at the center back of the jacket. Did it not fit right without that alteration...I'd love to make this jacket. I do have the pattern. I took a class with Nancy Shriber the Sashiko expert and this pattern was one of the few she uses when she makes up her Shasiko quilted jackets...

What I did with my Nikko, which was a bit tight in the hips, was to fold the lapels back, press them well (mine was linen so this was easy) and put a large button on each one. It's a very different look but it really works. Also, I had to make a back inverted pleat at the center back of this jacket. I've read lots of comments from others suggesting the same alteration. Obviously it's better to do this before making up the garment, but in a pinch, what I did worked.

It must be great, I'm lookin forward to see a picture, if you don't wan't to make a buttonhole maybe you can sew a big snap in the front and then the actual button on that or does it have shank?
