First of all: FOTO !


Bought in second-hand for silly small sum of money(sth like 1/3 dollar). Fabric is full of sequins made of real small,round mirrors!! they are not plastic! I love them,but it was hard to sew on machine, because I almost broke few times needle on them.  

Inside i used black lining.

I think that jacket is kind of fun actually, but its certainly not for me - & it looks much better as a bag!! I would be proud to carry that, whereas I'd probably be embarrassed to wear it, as a coat! Loveee the style, a tutorial would be great! =)

The ugliest clothes make the prettiest bags.  Your design worked so well with this fabric.  I would definitely carry this bag proudly.  I'd be excited to see a tutorial, too!
