Very cute jacket. YOur right I don't think you can buy those type of buttons off the shelf anymore. I have looked and looked.

Hi staging lady, it was just like making a blouse, darts, sleeves, collar, facings and buttonholes. the wool was a dream to work with. The collar you need to take your time and sew slow around to keep it's uniform shape this would be a time at use many pins. thanks for writting!

Hi fuzzygalore, thanks for the advice, I do know all about the slick lining effect. The wool fabric I used is a plaid flannel, very thin like cotton and happen to match the blue wool really great. It has red and royal blue color ways in it. I had several yards and wanted to use it up.

Beautiful color on you and lovely jacket. Congratulations on your first review.

Mmm. why line with wool? The point of lining is to provide a slick inside so your coat goes on without a struggle with whatever is underneath, and stays put without creeping up as you move in it. Do you always wear silk blouses :-)? If you merely want more warmth, you can interline with something like flannel, or use some special lining that's fleeced on the inside but still slick on the outside (your side). Apart from that, it looks really good on you, and you did a fantastic job with the buttons :-).

Very pretty! And I don't think you need to worry about the solid color. I see nary a mistake. :o) I'm with you on the lining, too. The only time I MIGHT not line a jacket is in the summertime, and even then I really have to force myself. Beautiful jacket!

no I just cut out the pattern pieces twice (except for the collar of course) made everything twice: darts, sleeves and cut off the facing of the lining so I can join the lining and the inside facing of the coat fabric together. If you follow directions for a coat with a lining you can apply it to any pattern.

Nice jacket--I love the buttons! I just received this pattern from the Vogue free pattern promo and will be making it soon. Glad to hear that it doesn't require much tweaking!

very cute style and color. Was it difficult to add the lining?
