    OMG Kazz, this is bonkers – in a good way! I remember sewing a button covered collar to my jean jacket back in the 80s after seeing Gena Davis wearing one in “Earth Girls are Easy”; it took me FOREVAH and a day. You must have spent ages!

      Thank you puffling, I like that you think it’s bonkers. Yes this took me half of Boxing Day into the night to complete, I’m not too sure I’ll do another in a hurry.
