A coat into a cape

Hi refashionistas,

This transformation involves a large maternity-like coat. 

I wished a cape so I took advantage from the large amount of fabric and I turned the coat upside down. I unpicked the sleeves and the collar. I closed the armholes and created new ones. 

I also recycled wrist belts into front closures. Here is the final result:

More photos and details are on my blog. If you like the result you can vote for me here. Till the next refashion, sew well.
