Hi all!

Haven't been on here for yonks - just busy with life in general!

Right - I have a dilemma. I bought this amazing leopard print coat off of ebay, thinking it'll fit me, but nope : literally a few inches too small around the chest and arms!! Sad

I really love it - I checked the seam allowance on the sleeves and chest area, not enough to let out. I don't want to get rid of it, as I love it waaaaaay too much.

I was thinking turning it into a cape or something - if anyone has any suggestions what I can do, that would be brilliant!! Mucho thanks!! xxx

LOL, glad you thought of something that quick! Is it to use the sleeves as extra fabric to turn it into a capelet?
