and it looks like there are buttons on the sleeve! Which means I have an excuse to make some thread wrapped buttons!
Again this is a project I have always wanted to try but until now really didn't have a reason to. I used the tutorial at http://www.renaissancetailor.com/demos_b
so after 5 hours I have 8 of the 12 buttons started. I intend to add either a pearl or jet bead to the top and add some black and gold details just to make them pop
