I am amazed this woman has accomplished so much with so few seamstresses.
I have one of the jackets from Nortique. It is boiled wool with fish skin covered buttons. I know that doesn't sound too appealing but it really is a great jacket that I have worn for years.

When you put it that way it sounds gross but if you think about it a minute it is probably beautiful.

ooh, is it like those old cold weather military parkas that had buttons you could boil to make soup out of if stranded somewhere (with your coat on, a pot and matches)? My DH had a couple of those and he made the mistake of taking one to the cleaners and not removing the buttons first. It says right on you should remove the buttons first. They dissolved right away.
The coats in the link do look very nice.

Thanks for sharing the article, Mary. It is certainly an inspiration for those starting a home based business.
