I opted for silver chain and buttons instead of gold as it really does go better with the navy/black.
This jacket is also item number 1 from my SWAP 2013 – one down only 10 matching/coordinating items to go. At least it’s a start – and a finish!
There were times when I though it would never be finished; I sometimes dreaded the apparently endless handsewing; I was often overwhelmed with the amount of work involved – now that it is done – I want another one! I love this style – the bracelet length sleeves, the boxy yet fitted shape, the easy throw on and comfortable to wear, the goes-with-anything style.
You want to see this on, don’t you?
