I love your jacket. It's nice to see another positive review for this pattern as I recently ordered it and am waiting for it to arrive.

dbsewer is right - buttonholes in faux fur are SO not worth the bother. Should the perfect buttons happen along, attach an elasticized loop to the overlapping sideof the coat, instead. I love the image of a fur coat in the wilderness...

I like the idea of fur hooks for closures.

Great jacket. Sewing with faux fur is a challenge but the outcome is so worth it. Yours came out very nice. I would recommend snaps (try to find some slightly larger than the regular size) because you can't make buttonholes in faux fur. The alternative is to go on-line and find a source for fur hooks. I used snaps on a faux lamb jacket I made from BWOF and they worked very well. Have fun and wear this in good health.
