View D is the jacket version for woven fabrics. The oddly shaped back piece seems to be the only intersection between the various views. The fronts, side backs, and sleeves are different for each view. The back is shaped like an exaggerated letter A, narrow at the top.
Interestingly, for view D only, it was supposed to be cut with the straight of grain across the back, rather than down the back. I am sad that I failed to study the layout before cutting into my fabric. This fabric would have benefited from such a layout.
The fabric is wonderfully comfortable and I really like the colors. It contains white, black and blue threads, a 100% cotton jacquard weave, soft and fairly loosely woven. Hard to match. I'll say no more about that.
I used some 3/4 inch silver buttons - old nickels. I really find those old buttons appealing.
