Dani's Red Coat
Dani's red coat was no longer loved. Worn out and pulling at the seams, with a stained and ripped lining, the coat had been worn for 7 years as a coat and Dani felt it was time for a change, although she loved the colour and the fabric...upcycling was the only thing for it!
The jacket part was quite an easy job, replacing the lining and changing the shape just a little bit - the dress was a lot more fun, creating something 'new' and unique from a pre loved garment.
Both the new jacket and the dress made from the coat were a success, and are loved once more in their new forms by Dani.
