Thank you! That's my next project. I really want to do this at least once. Thanks for the inspiration!

Swanpeace, you will enjoy making this using all the couture techniques. I especially enjoyed all the research I did on how tailors work their handworked buttonholes and sourced all the correct tailors gimp, silk threads, watched countless videos etc. Have fun and enjoy the process. Sure you will make more than one; I keep promising to make one for myself, but I have bought yet another of Claire's patterns........Vogue 8991 so I don't look like I am trying to compete with my much younger daughter!!

Another gorgeous couture creation! Those buttons are truly the icing on the cake. And handworked buttonholes no less!

Thanks Cissie. Had guidance from the gorgeous Jeffery Diduch on the buttonholes. Would love to meet him one of these days.........his tailoring is beyond impeccable isn't it.
