frankencoat lives

Added Jun 15, 2010

Philadelphia, Pe...






Frankencoat loves being different. He was assembled from random discarded pattern pieces from several mismatched patterns. Frankencoat also has no care about having perfectly matched plaid. Because unmatched plaid is punk rock!

I wore Frankencoat on our last rainy day here in Philly on my way to do some thrifting and a couple people stopped and asked me about it. It’s definitely a conversation piece. :)

I found the fabric at a yard sale and ripped the buttons off of an old jacket. It’s quite a lovely addition to my closet.

Material Notes

vintage plaid flannel.




Garment Type
Punk, Rock, Vintage

    OMG….love! I swear we had a blanket made out of this when I was growing up. It ended up being the emergency/trunk blanket in my first car!
