I found this red coat at one of those by-the-pound thrift stores and I don't even think I paid $2 for it. It was a fabulous red. But just sooo oversized. Ill-fitting. And also was a bit odd. I undid the lining. Slimmed down the sleeves and the waist area. I then fixed the pockets to be side pockets. Plus I visually fixed the buttons. Everything was finished with bias tape.
I used the leftover wool to make baby shoes. I have more wool so I will probably make more. I just find them darling. And wahoo for using up scraps of fabric and buttons from old refashions!
