#21 Green wool jacket finished

#21 Green wool jacket is now finished. I added silver tone buttons which have the print from a Roman coin which I rather liked, but DH thinks they are too shiny and I should have black or dark green instead.

#21 Green wool jacket progress

Last weekend my mum (another sewist) and I promised each other we'd work away at some of our sewing tasks - alterations, finishing things off etc and update each other on Sunday.
Well I can't let her down, can I? So I've been hand hemming the green wool jacket I started 4 years ago in sewing class and hope to add buttons and buttonholes pretty soon.
Since its winter I will actually get to wear it too.

Pics will follow.

I appear to have saved the scraps so a cute little waistcoat (vest) will be forthcoming!
