What a great looking jacket. I bought this pattern because of your review. I wish that I had also gotten some of that fabric while it was available.

I love it--and so smart to go to your drycleaner to get your pleats pressed! Good luck with the buttons.

Thanks for all the great comments. I have to say, the fabric is even better in real life. And I guess snaps are the way to go. Makes it so much easier too!

Your jacket is stunning...I would cover snap for the closures and then sew the buttons like you did.

I love this jacket!! I had been looking and drooling over the same fabric! What a great idea to take it to the dry cleaners to have him press the pleats! Big ole snaps are the way to go for closing it..

How elegant, really surprise those pleats in the back. And that fabric is beautiful.

Just another admirer of your well fitted and elegant jacket. Your fabric is stunning and so well suited to that style. Love the buttons and agree w/ snaps for closure and sew buttons on front, as this also gives you freedom to change size and style of buttons, if desired. -Lily

Gorgeous jacket! I agree about using large snaps and sewing the buttons on the outside for looks.

Beautiful jacket, the pleats in the back are a wonderful design detail.

Very cute jacket! You look great in it!

I agree with j222b. Put giant snaps for your closure and then sew the big buttons on. I have done this myself and, if you have studies RTW, this method is pretty hot right now. Jacket is fabulous.

"I want one too!" I saw this fabric and loved it but I couldn't think of what to do with it. I love you jacket. As for the buttons, I would practice on scraps, double thickness with the appropriate interfacing. You will probably be suprised at how good the second or third button hole works out, but I would practice first. OR, you could completely chicken out and put in snaps, as long ans you plan on always buttoning it.

I've seen RTW buttons with no buttonholes and large snaps for the jacket or coat close. Love your jacket!

by the way, as you can see from the back photo, I was having a really bad hair day.

Stunning. Your wonderful fabric shows off those design details beautifully.

I love your jacket and your review is so timely as I am about to make the same jacket - like you am not sure I want such big buttons. The other photos you have on the review are not coming through - I would love to see the back.
