I traded a cool sweater with a vintage friend for this great coat.
It is perfect for the weather here. Not too heavy and it almost fits me.
It has the smallest freaking sleeves...just at the wrist. Now part of that is because I'm a big gal with huge wrists, but they really taper down from just below the elbow. I have decided that since I have spent no real money on this and I really want a vintage coat that fits, I am planning to do a bit reconstruction.
Since I would prefer that it was a jacket I am going to cut about 5 inches off the bottom, cut the sleeves off where they begin to taper and add that 5 inches to the sleeves.
I hope it ends up working out.
Wish me luck.....
