It is a frighteningly open weave, not much better than bandage gauze.
I am about to purchase 7 large buttons and 12 small buttons to go with them from buttonsandtrim.
Since the jacket will have swappable buttons, I just got myself some original vintage Reichsmarine buttons to frighten people off.
The sleeves will have neutral vintage French gilded buttons.
I'm thinking of lining this with haboutai silk in a dark colour, which is a thin sheer fabric.
Any comments are welcome!
