Sewing on the fastenings
Originally I was just putting on a large button as you can see in my final images. I did decide the day of our tableaux performance that I wanted hooks to support the curved shape of the front of the jacket. I wanted it to sit correctly, especially considering the side view angle my actor Ivy would be standing in. I am very happy with this last minute decision, it really helped achieve the vision I had in my head for the duration of this project.
