This jacket started life with a cream lining and bad buttons, it was horrible, boring and far too military looking. Then I saw another project on here that a lady had done which inspired me to change the lining. Thank goodness I did too because I’m really pleased with how this jacket has finally turned out. I am now left with the cream lining so will probably knock up another jacket with a jazzy lining and maybe even use up those bad buttons (they’re not bad, just not good with the blue jacket). Anyway, I learned all about bound button holes with this jacket which took flipping ages but I really like the way they turned out so all is good.
