The black lining it came with had seen better days and was full of holes, I couldn't use the pockets (unless I wanted to lose what I put in them) because they also had holes. The sleeves had always been just a little on the short side and I wanted to lengthen them but just hadn't got around to it.
Well today I finally got out the lolly pink satin fabric I decided to use to re-line it and got busy. The satin had also been sitting there for quite a long time. Why have boring old black lining when you can have wonderful lolly pink!
So I ripped out the old lining and whacked in a new one. I also put a false hem on the sleeves which gained me and extra 5cm in length.
|I just love this fabric, I haven't seen anything like it anywhere.|
I love the new lining, it feels so good, almost like having a whole new coat.
Love a good re-vamp, have you re-vamped anything?
