Vintage Coat...

My sister purchased this fantastic wool coat for Willow on the weekend, for the grand total of $10.

Coat

Apart from needing a good clean, the coat is in perfect condition, however the lining is another story.

Lining

The plan is to reline the coat, I have my eye on some beautiful Liberty fabric that I think would be perfect.

Label

I had better start unpicking!

A gorgeous coat and a really ambitious plan to reline it. (Well, it would be ambitious if it were ME planning to do it).
It's going to be divine with Liberty inside. Gorgeous to look at and so soft to wear.
Enjoy!

Liberty would be beautiful though!
