Antrim, Co Antri...
well i’ve been seeing a lot of trenchcoats recently with faux leather sleeves ets. i loved the look but not the price tag.i got this trenchcoat in a charity shop. now its fab and warm as its quilted but it was massive on me. i took it in about 3 inches either side then removed the sleeves.i just copied the origional sleeve and reattached the tabs. i might add a leather trim at a later date. i think it turned out quite well and its lovely warm and modern now
