Restart06, I ordered the fabric from Linton Tweeds ( Potlady - I changed the grainline of the upper sleeve into the 'normal' one, i.e. running parallel with the sleeve seam at the upper sleeve. It's still too hot here in Hong Kong to wear a jacket like this, I can't wait for the temperatures to drop. Thank you everyone for the comments. For anybody having this pattern and being on the fence: do it, it is an amazing jacket and well worth the effort. It will take at least 80 hours though.

Gorgeous jacket! The buttons are a fun touch. What trim did you use?
9/29/13 8:24 AM
Manuela HK said...
Becca, I made the trim myself by pulling out threads from the fashion fabric and crocheting them together with 2 strands of eyelash yarn. The base of the trim is Petersham as recommended in Claire Shaeffer's instructions, you first sew on the Petersham (according to the instructions by hand, but I stitched it on by machine), then the trim is sewn on by hand on top of it. I love the clean and crisp finishing the technique of using Petersham gives to neck hole and edges.

absolutely love this jacket, the trim and buttons are fabulous, did you get the buttons locally or online (really hard to find good notions where I live). I personally prefer this shorter version and the repositioning of the pockets.

Ceejayem, I bought the buttons on Etsy:
