Re vamped re-cycled 80% wool coat for winter



A recent thrift store hunt found this 80% wool coat (Myer store brand) with hood, but I felt the plain grey was a bit drab, so home I went - had the ideal buttons in mind to brighten it up. I unpicked them from a shirt and sewed them onto the coat - now I think it looks a lot brighter - don't you?









this is the before.
