Since I figured out how to de-mustify my gorgeous kimono scraps I was finally able to put my original refashioning plan into action:
Grab an old jacket & some purty scraps & create one for yourself…
I started with a never-worn denim trench coat
…painstakingly arranged, pinned & trimmed a variety of beauteous bits to the front (*note to self: next time use a garment without so many pockets & schnicky-schnacky details to cut around)
…zigzagged around all of the edges first with a small, tight stitch
…and then over stitched with a wider zigzag for extra strength (as always)
…lastly, I added a long scrap to the belt & my new favourite jacket was born!
