So you changed it up and added the elastic. I really like this. Looked good then and now even looks better.

Thank you Andrea ! Yes, after a few years decided to give it new life and added elastic for an anarok look.

2009-2015! What an investment piece! Now that's how you build a wardrobe AND you've kept it current! Nice work!

Sheila said...

Thank you Terri ! It has definitely become an investment garment.

I agree with everyone here Sheila this is an absolutely great piece to have in a wardrobe! You should be really proud of yourself that you had something this long that remained current and let's not forget, you made it too!

That's a great coat! So perfect for fall. I am beginning to enjoy a bit of relief from our extremely muggy summer weather now that October has rolled around.
