+ Day 30: Vintage Trench..Done!

This was a Fox Run 70s’ vintage trench coat that looked big and overwhelming on me. I’ve really wanted a simple trench, so I was excited to find this one back in October at the DI. This one ended up being a bit of a challenge. I still have to go back and finish somethings up. But overall i love how it turned out and I’m excited to wear it out!
This is my FINAL refashion for this 30 day wardrobe revamp project!! WOOT WOOT! Wow, this project made me think…I mean really think. Trying to refashion creatively every night with a very limited amount of time can be quite a challenge. I can’t believe how much I have learned! Crazy. How I’ve missed blogging about family, thrift shopping, and just stuff. I can’t wait to catch you guys up!!!

  5. Way to go Liz! This was all so fun to see, you’ve had really great ideas. This coat looks super cute on you too!

  6. You are amazing!! I am just getting into sewing and you make it look so easy!! I need a lot of practice, but hopefully one day I will be as good as you and revamp clothing as well! I am your newest follower!


  7. I just cut the hem of a dress and turned it into a top, thanks to your inspiration :) I linked you too. Be well.

  8. Found a trench coat at Goodwill on Friday (for $4.50!), and, after seeing this, thought I could perhaps turn it into a cute coat, instead of a creeper item. Finished this morning, and I’m so happy about it! Thanks for the inspiration, you’re awesome.

  9. An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a friend who has been conducting a little homework on this. And he actually bought me breakfast because I discovered it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk about this issue here on your website.

  10. Everything is very open with a precise description of the challenges. It was truly informative. Your website is very helpful. Thanks for sharing!

  11. A fascinating discussion is worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you should publish more on this subject, it may not be a taboo matter but typically people don’t discuss these topics. To the next! Cheers!!

  12. This is a great tip especially to those fresh to the blogosphere. Simple but very precise info… Many thanks for sharing this one. A must read post!
