This is to aid the decision-making process.
I have finished my Little Black Jacket except for the buttons and buttonholes.
And I need some help in deciding which direction to take.
This jacket will be worn to work with khaki Bella trousers, airforce blue Bella trousers and anything else that needs smartening up.
Here is a very scruffy photo of the jacket without buttons... and the upstairs sink. Oops.
Basically, it is a single-breasted, shortish jacket made out of black sanded cotton twill, with lots of twin-rowed top-stitching and rounded patch pockets.
At the moment it doesn't have shoulder-pads, but I think I might have to add them to give more structure.
It is lined with black and white polka dot polyester.
And here are my button options, top to button:
- Black plastic with a slight texture - shanked
- Brass flowers (vintage) with shell inserts - shanked
Coconut shell with painted black letters - 2 holes
Red plastic as used on my winter coat - 4 holes
Or should I suck it up and order these from Bedecked? (exhorbitant p and p!)
