Oh yes, I Hong Kong finished all the interior seams with floral bias binding. It was extra work but that linen herringbone is so nice I wanted to give it a nice finish. (Seriously, the linen was a dream to work with–so much body, took an iron beautifully but kept its texture, just a neutral delight.)
I had the J. Peterman copy from the “champagne in a rowboat” jacket in my head while I was working on this: “It looks like nothing on the hanger and really not much in the picture. It looks like everything on.” This is just a beige shape on the hanger, but even throwing it on unhemmed over pajamas with weekend hair suddenly makes me feel so elegant! Polished! Even, maybe, finally…someone who brings champagne on a boat ride!

- Currently debating whether to put on snaps or to leave it plain, a la J. Peterman
