Update on Jacket #3
The collar is on, I have just the hem, cuffs, and buttons and buttonholes to do. Then jacket #3 will be done, probably not for a week as daughter, husband and five grandchildren arrive for a week's visit on Saturday. Five children under the age of eight! and four of them are boys! No more needs to be said.
Now that the collar is on, this jacket is showing its shape. It looked pretty shapeless before. I am pleased with the results so far. The flannelette underlining has given the jacket some heft and it feels substantial now. I will pick silver buttons, as I wear black and gray much of the time and gold buttons just aren't in my scheme. I think the jacket needs a bit of sparkle.
