Striped Shirt finished - with buttons from Korea

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.

Cheers!

  10. Robin, here's a great photo and blog about the "pagoda" shaped shoulder draft on a YSL jacket. I hope the links work. http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4061/5123616305_af78208c54.jpg
