New toy!

I finally decided to go for it and purchase a machine for poppers after much deliberation!  After seeing the result on the first coat (featured below) I used it on I am so pleased that I went ahead and bought it.  Delighted with the quality of the machine itself and the finish of the poppers on the garment.  
New machine for popper fasteners.

As you can see, I never quite got the hang of it first time round!

Contrast stitch detail.

Hood from back, zip feature and checked re-cycled hood lining.

The finished product.
Unfortunately I didn't take many photos of this coat before it was sold so I am afraid that is your lot.  However, I have just finished another which has the same style but is different in colour/lining.  Photos will follow soon.
