Ok...
I made a duct tape dress form last Thursday, and I wanted to try it out on this boxy, un-shapely mens pea coat I got from Old Navy about, 5 years ago. Just....ugly it was!

So, I ripped the whole thing apart, and put it back together again. I am proud of this. I am going to use it as my fall coat instead of buying a new one.

On Me..Cheesing and happy...In my PJ shorts of course.


On My Form.

I have worked on this for like, four days off and on, I keep going back to it, but now it is perfect!
It is posted in the Curvacious Crafters forum also, but, meh, I am being a post whoozit!

Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.

Adorable! I really like the length of the sleeves. It'd be fabulous with a scarf and a pair of long gloves on a chilly day.  Or is fall not scarf and gloves cold in other places? Hmm.... Or a cute pair of arm warmers.  Lots of possibilites.  Smiley
