I found some really cute buttons when I visited Dongdaemun in Korea last February. It's nice to use them.
Vicky - I serged the seams. I already had enough challenges with the alterations I was attempting.
Thanks everyone for your feedback about curving that shoulder seam - that's the next experiment.
And thanks for the compliments on the coat! I am enjoying it.
For now, no UFO's. That feels good.
