I actually do a fair bit of refashioning but because taking photos of myself wearing the items can be a bit tricky, I rarely blog them. Well I intend on changing that, so this week I dragged out the tripod and studio lights, and not only shot this jacket, but a whole lookbook of how I styled a daggy 80s 3-piece suit set into lots of really wearable outfits. More about that soon.
This is for everyone who wants to sell their vintage fur coat, stole, or other fur item. If you want to quickly get rid of your fur I advise you to take a good photo, send it to Richard Swartz, wait 42 hours for him to answer you. If he likes the fur you will receive a UPS, you will just have to put it in a box and job done, you will have sold your fur to a furrier without any effort.
Hello, my dear sewing soul mates!

Upcycling your old clothes or second-hand clothes is not just an excellent way to save money.
You all know I love thrift stores, but part of their nature is that you might find something you like but it doesn't fit you. Or you would like it more if it was slightly different. Well, a while ago, I discovered ReFashionista.
Instead of giving it to the thrift store and spending money on a new jacket, why not try updating your old coat?? Wednesday I went on my local morning show Studio 5 and shared my coat refashions. It was so much fun!
Eco Style. Starre Vartan January 18, I loved its curvy legs and hand-carved edging, but the top was an unseemly mass of scratches.
Happy new year and welcome to the blogging world, you'll enjoy it Hils, this coat is amazing, despite the ups and downs during the construction it's a project to be proud of as you've made a unique garment!

Winter coats are a must, even in parts of the South. However, old winter coats that have outgrown their fashion style are useless, right? Did you know that you can refashion those winter coats and give them a great fashion update?
