That makes two of us crazy people Curious...I simply can't fathom it.

Purechris, thank you thank you! I'm so excited to try it. Yes I was aware that Softie had pioneered this technique---hats off to her courage--- I was delighted to see that it had worked so well on your jacket!

Karma when I'm allowed.

I took the ribbing off of the vnk and ran it along one side of the neckline and then used part of the strip that I took out of the back to layer the on the front for the placket. then I cut the facing out of a vintage tshirt for the other side of the sweater. When I finished and tried it on (after a few drinks and working with pins in the mirror) I realized that I put the plackets backward (right over left like a womens, not left over right like mens).....so in stead of using buttons or snaps I'm using random button/badge pins to keep it closed.

Don't drink and sew!!!
Looks great! (though I don't totally understand your process )
Holding needle & thread makes me sweats. Things I made so far ended up lopsided.

softer shirts
i have some polo shirts (from hollister) and one button down shirt from american eagle, and i would like them to have a softer, more dated look. especially around the collar. i kinda like my collar to lay flat rather than to stick up a little. anyone have any ideas how i can kinda destroy the shirts (without holes and bleach stains haha)

i think brown tortoise buttons would look very rich and luxurious....

I agree on the horn buttons....I'm having a hard time seeing what the jacket looks like on my screen....what's the fabric? Do you want it to be dressier or everyday? If the style could handle it and you're into it, I think some vintage (looking) military buttons could be quite nice....

...stay tuned I'm working on knocking this off:



as soon as I find that damn zipper foot!!!
