Even though it’s summer, last week I found this fabulous coat at the thrift store and couldn’t pass it up. I love a good thrifted coat.
While looking I also found some leather maternity pants. I should have snagged them, huh? I love saving money while sewing.
It was huge and my husband said it looked like a bag, but I knew it had great potential.
I took it in about ten inches on the circumference from the sides and just a couple inches in on the sleeves. I love it!
It’s so classic. I’m pretty sure it’s a 1960’s A-line style.
It’s looks so much better after the alterations. I also love the thick, loose fabric weave. It has so much texture!
I’m loving the warm summer, but I can’t wait for winter to wear this gorgeous coat! The color is stunning!
