Trish’s Reader ReFash!

Elastic is Fantastic!
SlipsKnute Resolutions for 2014!

This week’s Reader ReFash comes from Trish in New Jersey!  It’s a good bit chilly there.  I mean, that town will rip the bones from your back!  It’s a suicide rap!  She’s gotta get out while she’s young!

Sorry…too much Bruce Springtsteen at too young an age!  New Jersey is actually quite lovely, I hear (They don’t call it the garden state for nothin’).

Anywho…Trish had these two coats:

Two Coats…both alike in dignity.

I’ve been seeing trenches with leather sleeves and have really wanted one but wasn’t willing to spend the money on another coat. I knew this would be a cool project for class but didn’t have the pieces until I raided my old clothes at my parents house.

My sister had a pleather jacket that she used to wear from Limited Too (just to give you an idea of how old that coat is) and I had an olive-ish trench that I just never wore. Fortunately my mind put the two together!


Isn’t this awesome?
It’s gorgeous from the back as well!

And here’s Trish in her gorgeous creation!

Awesome job, Trish!

Well done, Trish!
