Jacket...........Simplicity 3628 View B

I have been sewing but not blogging..... I actually made 4 pants in the past week and half  but will get to reviewing them shortly. In the meantime, here is a  jacket I completed last Friday, I cut and sewed the jacket in about 6 hours. There is nothing much to the pattern as have made it before here.
The only thing I did differently was added a real pocket instead of flap and lined with a contrasting gorgeous cotton silk, oh mine silk is such a lovely material to sew and wear, I love its feel to the body. The jacket fabric has been in my stash forever some kind of suiting fabric I think wool-polyester
I have completed the button-hole but I am  not sure of the button colour to use, your  suggestions will be appreciated as I am so confused right now.
I love this jacket so much and it wears so well. The color is so great for fall/winter as I don't want to limit myself to just black and brown jackets....
So fellas what do you think of my color-blocking???

  1. You're going to look wonderful in this great jacket.

    1. Thanks Velosewer. I love the jacket and will be posting some photos soon

  2. Nice jacket in a popping color. That'll brighten up your wardrobe!

  3. Love,, love, love! I absolutely agree with you. It's nice to wear vibrant colours during the winter months. As for buttons, a brushed or antique gold or silver. Or perhaps a tortoise shell my work.

  4. Thanks Angela, I have been looking for buttons at local store no luck at all, not even antique looking one.

  5. I love this color for fall! Your color blocking is just great too! I am a silver gal and love silver buttons on a jacket! I think the same color shell as the lining would be neat. Something about opening your jacket and the surprise of the top and the lining matching!
