Refashion a Gigantic Suit into a Sleeveless Coat
In Northern California, we often see drastic swings in the temperature from one day to the next, so I'm always looking for stylish layering pieces. When the sleeveless coat trend hit the runway this year, I knew I was going to make my own version of this trend. I found this suit at the thrift store for around 7 dollars. It was size 2X and enormous. The suit came with a skirt that could fit 2 of me.
First, I chopped off the sleeves.
Then I took in the sides.
I reshaped the armhole and finished it with bias binding.
