The weekend before last, I got the lining for my coat for MidEastFeast pieced together; last night, I got the stripey fabric for the outside of the coat pieced, and started putting the two together.

And then realized I hadn't made any provisions for buttoning. Um. Hi. Oops?

I thought about lucet cord, but ... maybe I'm doing it wrong or too tight, but my lucet cord always starts out incredibly stiff, and I really have to work it / wash it / use it a bunch of times before it gets more flexible.

Someone suggested going to JoAnn's or Michael's and getting 'button loop tape'; I was told it's usually in the bridal section.

Anyone-- thoughts, suggestions?
