Simplicity 3513 Jacket



This is a pink Pique Jacket I made for my girls (size 7 shown, other daughter's is size 5) to go with their new spring floral dresses. The jacket and dress are from the same pattern envelope Simplicity 3513.
I actually made this just like the pattern said to for view D but now I am wondering what to do for the closure - I think it begs for one big hot pink button and button hole right about where I have the safety pin. The pattern calls for buttons to just be sewn to the front and just hide snaps underneath, but I think that would be cheezy - anybody with me on the button?

I just thought of something...if I don't get around to making another pair of dresses, these can be Easter Dresses! Earliest I've ever gotten them done!

I think they would be GREAT Easter dresses. I also think that one big button would be great - a big bold one right there where the pin is.

As soon as I saw the pin I thought: She is putting one big button there! I also thought: That must be their Easter Dresses! Great Minds travel....
