Yep, Snaps would be my thing

If I were to ever be in any type of sewing competition, I would probably try to put snaps on everything and be eliminated in the first round.

I just love me some snaps. Love the way this came out. The pattern only called for the jacket to be lined but of course I lined the skirt as well. In case you forgot it's McCalls 5817
This goofy pic is to show how well the skirt fits, which it doesn't really do but you'll just have to trust me it fits great.
I'm really happy that I was able to finish this Friday evening because that leaves two whole days to do something else.
BTW, I decided not to frog my sweater because once I looked at the yarn requirements I realized I didn't have enough for the Bernat pattern.

The suit turned out great and you've inspired me to bump it up on my sewing list. The use of the snaps is a nice touch.
