burda pattern with some self-made changes
InstructionsI like recreating things from 'old' clothes, other people discard and it is my special challenge to remake it into something else, but nice and wearable. Anyone can do this, with a bit of fantasy and some sewing skills.

wool blend My mother-in-law left behind this coat and I was allowed to keep it and do something with it. I l loved the fabric of the coat, but hated the rest, so I took it all apart and remade it into this coat for my daughter
What was your inspiration?
Several craftsy courses I am taking at the moment. I combined different techniques and tips I picked up from I from the couture dress and the starlet jacket.
What are you most proud of?
That I was able to create this nice coat for my daughter without having to spend a fortune on fabric. I also love the fact that I am can directly convert the things I learn in the different craftsy courses, into the different projects I make.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just give it a try and if it doesn't work out the first time, just keep on trying and one day you come up with something beautiful.
