Thank you all for the great responses on my Amadeus coat! Well, after that, I am posting a refashion that was actually super quick and did – for a change – NOT take just as long as starting from scratch would have taken…
It was an oversized vest that looked silly on me – only super tall, slender models could wear it, with really tight clothing underneath, maybe… and I combined it with an old sweater from my husband. The pattern was copied down roughly from a knit dress I own and love. And voil, out I come with a knit dress I own and love ;-)
