Button Scenario

I've been playing with my buttons. The first pic shows how the buttons should be placed.Then... I did double button placement - sort of a faux double breasted look...ummm



Thinking I could use covered snaps underneath the button placket.


What do you think?
Also, I plan on doing a reversible belt using the fashion fabric on one side and faux dk brown leather on the other side, and would like to add belt carriers to the jacket... any suggestions about making belt carriers. Or should I forego the belt carriers.

I love the "faux" double breasted look - and the colour of this jacket is fab, too!

I agree with Caity. The double breasted look is perfect for this coat!

My votes for the faux double breasted. Cute, girl.

I think the faux double breasted look is the winner, hands down.

Faux double breasted for me too!

Thanks for all your help. I am going to go with the faux double breasted look. I purchased large snaps last night @ JoAnns and also purchased the faux dk brown leather for the reversible belt.

Hopefully this weekend I will be able to hem the lining to the jacket, do the sleeves. I plan to send it to the cleaners before sewing on the buttons.

I believe that if you are going to use belt, I like plus the first image althought the faus double breasted is the winner, jeje.

I'm late but I agree, the faux double breasted definitely gives the jacket the perfect look.
Your jacket is beautiful, and great job on the welt pockets.

I was wondering did you get a contrasting color or matching color for the faux leather. I think its going to look fabulous!

Sheila said...

Hi Cici,

I purchased a dark brown faux leather for the belt.

I finished hemming the lining to the jacket, and sleeves as well. As I type, the jacket is in the cleaners and should be able to pick it up @ 4:00pm today.

Thanks for asking.
