Yea! I got to sew today!

I finally got a chance to sew for a while today. I'm almost done with my jacket from the last post below. It's fully lined and all I have to do is hem the bottom & the sleeves add my buttons & buttonholes. I'm trying to decide on the buttons I'll use, these are my choices from my button stash, what do you all think? I'm leaning toward the middle one or the one to the right since it has some blue faded in. Your feedback would be very helpful. Also, last week I finished a lined skirt also from my last post, the fabric I used is on the left, Here's the skirt... Last post, I had posted about using this pattern, I thought I wanted to do the longer one, view C but didn't care for it at all on this current body so I'm sticking to the shorter lengths. I still plan to make the blue & black plaid check (in the picture) above but in a short version. That may have to wait for fall sewing now since spring is just around the corner I think since my sewing time is so limited lately I'd better get busy on sewing for spring & summer. More later...

Happy Sewing!!

The jacket is fantastic! I vote for the buttons on the left or in the middle...can't wait to see this finished.

Lovely jacket, I like the button on the right but it may just be the pic, I think the middle one would work well too. I don't know where my sewing time went either, I was very happy to have some "me" sewing time today.
