    Has anyone used sew on snaps and then just sewn on buttons on the top of the jacket for effect? I have never used snaps before and I just don’t want to hammer anything into fabric. Doesn’t seem like I’ll be as successful at that as with sewing on some Joanne’s metal snaps. Thoughts?

    The snaps sold by Oliver+S are fantastic, I can thoroughly recommend them.
    However, you could definitely sew in some poppers and then sew a mock button over the top.

    I have not done that with this pattern but I have on many other garments and it works fine.

    I’ve had great success with Snap Source products. Their Snapsetter is pretty much fool proof and their Snaps are good quality. Oliver + S sell a Snapsetter and snaps.

    I agree on the Snap Source products. The Snapsetter is great. I ended up getting a snap press when I was sewing diapers, but I still use Snap Source snaps with it. They are great.

    I think the biggest issue with sewing on buttons is the choking hazard if they come loose? At least that is the reasoning I have heard for why baby clothes should have snaps that will not budge easily.
    I use resin snaps and snap pliers — did not have luck with the tubey setting tool or pliers by Dritz and ring-type snaps at all.
