However, I pictured unwinding my long hair from the epaulet buttons multiple times per wearing.
They weren't even sewn into a seam so I knew my seam ripper would quickly be in use once I got the jacket home.
A few stitches tacking the facing to the seam allowance to secure it...
...and the jacket is ready to launder and wear. Removing that detail was quick and easy. I often deconstruct new clothing--and sometimes old--with my seam ripper, especially flaps on pockets and labels in itchy spots.
I still need pants, though!
