Thanks. Maybe if I got paid like a Saville Row tailor, I'd handstitch my own buttonholes too....
Comfy? well, that's all perspective. I have never found layered clothing to be comfortable. But it is not any less comfortable than any other layered clothing. So I guess it's fine. And there is no velcro- so that's good. Though my husband suggested velcro for 'buttons'.... yuck.
I found the perfect buttons though..... like a LOVE/PEACE sign in the perfect colors...
half the reason for buttons/holes is to keep the  facing tacked down...... maybe a pocket on the other side will do that.
Yes, I am pretty sure it is batik or a batik look-alike anyway... not sure if batik has spefics like dye process or weave.
back to the chocolate chip cookies for the demo!

Looks great! Fancy shmancy with all the purple (batik?) fabric and
extra decorative topstitching! Very nice! Is it comfy?

I wouldn't worry too much about the button holes. Most Rabbits seem
to wear their coats "open", anyway. If you can't get your machine
straightened out, I understand all the best Saville Row tailors do
theirs by hand anyway. =^>
