ย Even though it’s summer, last week I found this fabulous coat and couldn’t pass it up. (While looking I also found some leather maternity pants. I should have snagged them, huh?)
It was huge and my husband said it looked like a bag, but I knew it had great potential.

I took it in about 10 inches on the circumference and a couple inches 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. 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!

  5. So cute! I am so jealous of your talent to transform things. I often see things with potential and lack the talent, but I do think of you everytime ๐Ÿ™‚
