Jacket Done!

Here she is!  I love this jacket, true, it's a no frills design but the shape and collar make it very wearable.  I love the buttons, 1950's vintage pearl buttons by BlueBonnet.  They came from my best girlfriends mom's sewing box, thanks Blanche!  The Simflex gauge is a big help for spacing buttons, this part of the garment is always a bit troublesome for me, but with my trusty tool it's so much easier.  The pattern instructions are a bit trying as we have to skip around the pages to get this done.  I used Judy Barlup's Japanese Tailoring video to help me along the process and just put those instructions away.  I'll make this one again.
