Get inspired by these stunning coat refashions to make your own unique winter coat. You can make a gorgeous coat from another coat or some other fabric entirely!
This post is full of tutorials and coats you can purchase that are refashioned and upcycled. You’ll never guess all the items that make up these gorgeous, reimagined coats.
What is refashioning?
Refashioning is to fashion clothing again or differently. I usually use this to describe when I’m sewing clothing to fit different or to look different, but the majority of the item stays the same.
What is upcycling?
Upcycling is to reuse material to create something better than the original. I usually use this to describe when I’m sewing adult clothing into clothing for children or I’m sewing clothing into an accessory or house item.
