Shoulder Pads, Buttons, and Yarn, Oh My

After modeling my jacket in class, the other students and our teacher checked the fit and pinned in the side back seams to be taken in another quarter inch, which I did when I got home. I got my buttonholes and buttons finished in class. I decided to cover my own buttons and I really like how they make the jacket look polished. I never thought I would add shoulder pads, but they really help with the pouf of the pleated sleeves. I covered them with the lining fabric, so they wouldn't stand out so much. Once I tack those shoulder pads in, this project is officially done!

I finally got my KnitPicks yarn yesterday too. The color is much different in person than it appears on the website. It's much more turquoisey-green. I think I like it enough to keep it. At least I Could wear what I knit with the jacket since it matches the lining! Ha!
