I have realised that I need to make a decision on buttons for my Hikaru before I sew the lining in… and I don’t even know what I’m looking for. What kind/colour buttons would you put on this jacket?
For a reminder, this is what the pattern has for button placement, and also the burdastyle example:
So; Help??!

    What about those rounded leather knot buttons – I think I saw some at Tessuti? That is a lot of buttons though! The jacket looks really nice so far…

    Maybe deep brown? I think black would be a bit cold, needs to have some warmth! Definitely take the jacket to the shops and see. I think something fairly plain since there are a lot to go on the jacket. – Kelly

    Either of the above comments would work.
    If you're feeling adventurous, you could make your own covered buttons with funky fabrics …. give it a more patchwork feel.
    (But that's just me)
