I have just altered an ‘op-shop'(thrift shop) jacket. The shoulders were so well cut and fit so well that it was worth making it shorter, reducing the swing and altering the pockets and re sewing all the HongKong bound seams. I have worn it twice and just love it BUT…It would be easier to wear if it had at least one button to keep it in place while walking. This is the first jacket i have worn without buttons and I miss them.
What do I need to look for in the cut of the front of the jacket (which has a normal notched collar and lapels) to help me work out if it is possible to add a button? I thought one larger one would be nice.Where do I place it?
