I am really going to enjoy wearing this jacket when it gets warmer - like in a month (or two)! I decided on silver snaps because they would be less contrasty than the gold. In the few photos here, I am showing snap placement. The instructions on snap assembly come with the snap kits. You have to hammer a hole where each half of the snap will go and then hammer on the snap parts. There are 13 snaps so this means you have hammering 13 x 4 times - two each for the holes and two each for the halves of the snaps. That’s a lot of hammering.
The only tricky parts are the pockets because you have to put a small piece of wood into the pocket to hammer on the bottom half of the snap. Here is the pocket flap with the top half of the snap on it.
Now I have pressed the top part of the snap into the pocket to make a mark so I can determine where to put the bottom half of the snap.
Next. you can see I have placed the bottom half of the snap and am about to hammer the pieces together.
Finally, the finished jacket!
