Help me with a wardrobe alteration decision, Tumblr hivemind! I have this jacket, and need to add some sort of front fastener to it. It’s not meant to close completely, so buttons are out of the question. Do I want to sew a wide ribbons on each side that can be tied in a bow at the waist? Or do I want to add grommets to each side so I can lace it with narrow ribbons?
