It was feeling boxy, unstylish and a bit, meh! Rather than give it away though, I decided to make it more me with a spot of customisation.
I changed the shape of the lapels and added a faux fur collar. A nice blinging brooch, some lace trim on the pockets and a nautical brass button on each pocket.
All in, the work took me 2 evenings, and I'm so pleased with the result.
I wore it for the first time since adapting it over the weekend to wander down into town, take in the scooter festival and go the pub... In between decorating.
