Today I made my mom this mod style pea-coat for her upcoming trip to Copenhagen. It is made from an old wool coat, which was pretty outdated (Circa early 90's, and kinda frump-a-dump). After I hacked it up, it's little more fashionable with the high collar and yellow satin piping.
My brother is a painter (www.jefrescott.com), so I took one of his works which had been printed on canvas, and sewed it into the lining. Just a little added touch of love.
