Use the Good Stuff: day 7 Vintage faux fur coat

imageI found this champagne-colored vintage Mod style faux fur coat at a secondhand store up north in Michigan.  It has 3/4 sleeves, a big swing shape, giant buttons that I’ll never be able to replace if they fall off, and a giant collar that when I have it up, and my hair in a french twist, could be straight out of 1961.

I bought it for $12.50. Had it cleaned for $40 and it’s a great investment – warm, looks great with long gloves ($60 for those) and I feel uuber chic! Even though I have this wicked cold and look like I do 😉

I'm Ann. I've been sewing since I was 9. My first project was a denim wrap skirt. Thrifting is a way of life for me - both eco-chic and financially savvy.
