Cover the snap fastener halves with lining fabric. Cut two circles of lining fabric, slightly larger than the snaps. Hand-sew small running stitches by along the edge (22) and do not cut the thread. Lay the snap half face down on the wrong side of the fabric and pull the thread to gather the lining material smoothly around the edge of the snap. Now use the needle and thread to sew the gathered edge together with crisscrossing stitches (23). Sew the snap halves to the centre front, on the peplum joining seam, with the upper snap half on the inside of the right front. Take even, regular stitches and exit the needle on the outer side of the jacket. Sew the lower snap half to the left front edge.
