I made this coat last year with the larger collar and I found myself not liking it and not wanting to wear it.
This morning, I was suppose to take down the Christmas tree first thing but somehow ended up in the Sewing room instead. I don't often get to alterations but I decided if I want to get back to my Swap sewing, I have to fix this coat .
It really didn't take me long to cut out, interface and sew the new collar ,which is from view C,D&E.I also made a fringe trim to match the trim on the pockets. I took out the old collar and sewed in the new, all in an hour and a half.
Here it is now and I like it so much better.
I found this great scarf in my closet which matches it perfectly.
I don't love this coat but I will definitely wear it more now than before.
Now on to taking down the Christmas tree.
Happy sewing from Diana!
