Very happy with the kit all around and my jacket!. Having everything match in the perfect size was a time saver for me. No hunting all over the internet for what I needed.
This kit was really useful. Usually I would hunt around for hardware, but I figured this kit would make everything simpler. I like how everything matched, and that there were extras for me to practice. Everything in it was high quality. It was so much easier to have everything I need in 1 package. I don't anticipate making another jacket anytime soon (I love mine - but so time consuming!), but if I did I would probably purchase another kit.
I do think a key (with the kit) would have been helpful - just a diagram naming the tools and different parts. The guide online was useful, but I would like to have the key stored with the tools so I know what I have, and can use for other projects.
The first time I make a unique item I like to buy kits. Then I can spend time sewing instead of searching. This kit is perfect for that. The quality is just what you'd expect from Closet Case! I'd certainly recommend it.
Overall I really liked the Kelly Anorak Jacket Packet. I appreciated having all of the tools to install grommets and snaps as well as the sew-along instructions for installing them. I have made two Kelly Anorak Jackets thus far - one for my daughter (I added a faux fur button on/off collar over the high collar option) and one for myself
(I shortened the sleeves to 3/4 length and put a simple band finish on them).
The Kelly hardware kit includes:
15 x 15mm spring snap buttons
Tool kit to install snap buttons (including fabric hole punch)
3 x 6mm grommets
Tool kit to install grommets (including fabric hole punch)
1.5 yds sturdy black cotton drawstring cord
2 x spring cord locks (these secure the cord in place at the waist)
2 x cord stoppers (these finish the end of the cord)
1 x 26" separating coat zipper (black with brass teeth)
The only changes I would make are:
1. Make the separating coat zipper be a parka style zipper so it can unzip from the bottom as well as the top.
I am quite short so when my jacket is zipped up and I sit down it would be nice to have the option to unzip from the bottom.
2. The cord stoppers are a little small relative to the cord so I can't hide a knotted off cord inside the cord stopper. I suppose I don't have to use it but it's a nice touch to make the jacket look more professional.
3. Offer a shorter separating top-down/bottom-up zipper option for us short women.
Life happens and I have not had a chance to use the kit. I did, however, take time to look at it and I am very pleased with the contents as well as the price. Thank you for putting the kit together.
I loved that this kit came back into stock! I had been trying to source the hardware other places when I found out that it was available again,
My only qualm is that there are no directions for the grommets and snap buttons (at least a "key" that tells you what parts are for what and which tools do what) I found the tutorial online to be missing this information as well and even though that includes pictures, they aren't very clear.
