It's still too hot to do a proper photo shoot of Vino; today was TROPICAL hot, and I'm trying not to complain. I did wear it last week, but it was dark and this coat needs great lighting (don't we all?). It's a great coat. I decided when I was making it to not do the buttonholes so I had lots of closure options when I was finished, including the possibility of none at all.
After wearing it I decided I needed something. I love toggles and found some at Fabricland.
I think they'll be perfect. Thing is, I haven't got a clue how to put them on. They are just string glued to leather triangles, so I will need to sew down the string to ensure it stays on (or go with better glue, one fell off already). I'm not so lucky with the sewing machine (in fact, every time I take it out, I also want to take the hammer to it), so I might take it to a seamstress for a professional job.
Any of you smart readers have suggestions? Something that would help either my attempts of my instructions to whomever I hire to do this.
