Perfect coat for journeying to the farmers market, Rivendell or anywhere in between. Vintage altered upcycled eco friendly and unique. This started out as a green pure wool sweater. It was thick. I felted it in the washer/dryer to make it thicker. I decided that it needed to be longer so I added a corduroy skirt( it is upholstery fabric) The bottom of the sweater and where the two fabrics are joined are trimmed in cream gimp" or decorative edging. There are large patch pockets made from the upholstery fabric The pockets are embellished with lace at the top and have ruffled quilting fabric around their edges. The quiltling fabric is used as a binding for the front of the corduroy part of the skirt. There are buttons on their corners. The sweater has six polymer clay buttons in pink and gold. The sleeves have upholstery fabric cuffs and visible serged seams. The back of the sweater is embellished with a large vintage cream colored lace doily. There is a collar made from vintage hand crocheted lace over the original collar. It is hand sewn and then embellished with blue satin ribbon. The same ribbon is used on the sleeves and to anchor the buttons on the pockets. This was a labor of love that resulted in a unique product

It measures 42 inches around at the underarm when buttoned and 41 inches from shoulder to hem.Even though this has been in the washer/dryer before I would wash it and let it dry flat just to make sure it doesn't shrink further.
