I like to think that out of every mistake is born a great idea. I recently completely ruined a vintage trench coat with bleach while trying to clean off a stain. Devastated, the recycler in me couldn't throw it in the scrap pile because of its fine construction and high quality vintage fabric. So after a week or two of stewing over what to do with it, I came up with The Trench Coat Project.
The trench coat project involves re-tailoring, distressing, adding to, modifying and otherwise updating vintage trench coats to take on a haute couture look and feel. Here is a sneak peek at the first trench coat victim:
Stay tuned in the next few weeks as I unveil the first trench coat!
