Never mind my scary eyes in this picture. I constructed this by myself just a few weeks ago, since I love the army trend. The blue fabric is 100% thin wool that I got from my aunt, the black details are from the spills of a velvet coat my mom made twenty years ago and that I shortened. The buttons are the only thing that’s not second hand.
