Loes Hinse Bolero Jacket Tweak
This is the jacket that I took a break from to mull over what closure to use and how to add some color. I felt like a big beige blob, what with my light hair and skin. I had asked for ideas from SG Jacket-A-Month sew-along and I received some ideas that started me thinking
The completed jacket with the closure I finally decided on.
I began by establishing a base for the crochet trim around the collar and lapel and sleeve hem. I used wool worsted yarn.
I created the 'button' by gluing some various beads and colorful doodads on a large button. On the back of the button, I glued a smaller shank type button to use for ease of attaching to the crochet medallion that I then attached the whole thing to the jacket.
The actual closure are a couple of size 2 covered snaps.
