Everyone. I just hit a jackpot! I've found the closest looking fabric I've ever been able to find in the United States to the original coat fabric. Whew!!!! It's gonna wipe me out with it being 14.99 a yard, but good grief, opportunity may never knock again. The only problem now is those blasted buttons! Anybody with a good eye know if they're black or dark brown. They look like leather but also handpainted, because I've never seen buttons that color before, and my grandmother collects them!
Tell me what you think about the fabric? Is it a close enough match or should I continue my long search? I would really like to know your opinions.
