Thank you, everyone! I'm really happy with the result; I'm far from professional, so rest assured it can be done, with some practice and patience. Smiley

I also have to say, that hat's making me deeply envious.

Oh, right, the hat! I forgot to mention the hat: I got that from a blogging friend, Lisa. It's proved to be far more than just a schoolgirl hat!

I wish I could get a better look at the buttons that your grandfather made.

I'll take a photo once I get home from school. Smiley

The buttons look good. They really are perfect for the jacket.  I hope you are doing well in school.
