close look

close look to the jacket's front, its buttons, and its seams.
close look to the armhole, the top of the sleeve, and profile of the jacket.
I think the embroidery is shown clearly  in this picture.

This is such a lovely suit, Lily..wonderful attention to detail.

As a tailor myself, I am curious about how you placed the buttons, as I am always eager to learn from others who sew.
Is there a reason why they are not the same distance from the edge of the jacket?

First thanks so much for your so sweet compliments.
Second , they are in the same distance from the edge otherwise it will give a very bad appearance. I think it is the black and withe illusion or angle of my photograph. Thanks for your note too.

Oh I forget to say something else, I have made the button hole wide a bit, and the movement of the buttons also give this feeling.

Thanks for your answer, Lily, I truly appreciate it. It truly is a wonderful suit.

As a tailor, I have never made buttonholes so wide that the buttons can slide apart so's just a personal preference as I like my buttons to always appear equally spaced.

However I suppose some people prefer having more "movement" for the jacket fronts to slide apart, more easily...and as tailors, we always have to give our clients what they want, don't we? ;)

You are welcome dear. I know you meant your words, and I know that you wanted to know why it looks like that. I just sew for myself, my sister, and my mum. I am doing my own pattern, and didn't put the buttonholes or button places on my pattern. I always mark them later when I finish the garment, and use my sister as a model to do so. often I change my mind about buttonholes that is why I am doing them wider. Sometimes I choose big button or change my mind again. I think I shouldn't do that though. Thanks for your note
