The standing collar jacket was a lot of work and time, about 30 pieces if I recall; and after putting in all that time and effort I stalled out on the buttons. Yes, five measly buttons shelved this jacket for over two years.
So now I’m on a kick to downsize my sewing stash and this jacket was on the chopping block. I was thinking I would not be interested in wearing it after two years, best just to finish it up and sell it off. Then when putting it on to test my button placement, I remembered how nicely this jacket fits and how soft the fabric feels and what do you know, I’ve a keeper after all.
