I love it in this wool. I'll get a lot of wear out of it as a light jacket. In the fall, it can just be a beefy blouse. This wool is so soft and non-itchy it would be fine. I am almost done. This thing calls for three decorative buttons and five sewn-in snaps. I don't mind sewing in snaps but I'm a s l o w hand-sewer. I'll update my review on PR when I get it accomplished later today. I will be taking the elastic out of the back and making a longer piece so it isn't so tight. If feels fine but I think it would look better a little looser. I can't for the life of me find the elastic measurements in the BWOF magazine. I just guessed at how big the elastic should be. Following Lindsey T's advice, I covered my buttons with the wool fabric. Love it. I should have gone one size larger though.
