I found this winter-white wool coat. It was in very good condition, but it didn't fit me well, especially around the biceps which is always a fitting challenge for me. But, I thought there was enough fabric to do "something" with it.
I also found this men's leather coat. Although there are some signs of wear, it, too, was in very good condition, with a zip-out lining and a very nice (and DEEP) zipped pocket located in the left facing.
Given that they're on trend this season, I initially thought about using them both to make a refashioned bomber jacket, and began flipping through my pattern collection. While I'm pretty sure I would want to make some style alterations - like remove some of the excess fabric under the arms and at the sides - some of the immediately available options included...
...but then I saw this image today in the September 2016 of Real Simple magazine...
Cute coat, huh? And, I could see being able to use this Simplicity pattern as the base to make this one work.
I think I'm leaning more towards making Simplicity 2508. I hope I have enough fabric to work it out. Stay tuned.
