I found the most beautiful buttons for my Coraline . They are vintage deep ruby glass buttons encased in brass. I've already blocked the cardigan and today made the buttons loops with embroidery floss matching the light grey rowan baby alpaca. The red and grey work great together and I like the smocking detail on the yoke.

Here some shots of my finished coat sylvie .I'm wearing it all the time now, the easiest piece to slip on when in a hurry, school runs especially. I had a few comments about the hood , it is pointy , elvish if you like and quite charming , maybe it need a bell to attach to,only kidding!
