I made this jacket from my grandma’s old housecoat.
My original intention was to make a cape, but I ended up turning it into a a kimono-sleeved jacket. I lined it, , added a few fabric-covered buttons, and used the original tasseled belt from the housecoat.
I have more details on how I made this on my blog: Daughter Fish
