Okay, this used to be something akin to this: http://www.tradeeasy.com/photo/seller/87962/lgraphic/1199955132906_gp1011.jpg

Except...a women's version. Someone gave it to me and it did not fit at all, but it was 100 percent wool and I wasn't about to give that up! So I turned it into this:

The details: it has a cropped length, swing sleeves, big cuffs, a high collar, a chunky metal off-center zipper, military-inspired tabs, and bright red polyester lining. I'm really excited about how it turned out, and I'm already in the process of reconstructing another old coat to make a similar jacket!

Thank you for looking!

That jacket turned out great. I really love all the little details you put into it. Your whole outfit works great together, and the pics are a nice touch.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
