OLD COAT--NEW COAT

This is my Spring coat which I have had for a few years.....plain but practical. This is it's makeover debut....a new collar.
New cuffs on it's three quarter length sleeves.
Trim and covered buttons on it's pockets.
Covered buttons on it's back belt.....It is VERY Spring-like and seems VERY new. So much fun to wear. The first day I wore it, I had 3 compliments. I have been thinking about doing it for sometime now, but when I saw Sandi Henderson's book , Sewing Bits & Pieces 35 Projects Using Fabric Scraps I had to do it! I have my book ordered from Amazon.com! You will want one too!
