Since my last renovation post was about the master ensuite, I thought I’d better clarify this post. Yes the ensuite is done, but that is another post.
Several years ago, a friend passed along to me a boiled wool jacket with a zippered front, and all edges were banded with a knit edging. I wore it alot but honestly it had seen better days.
So I cut off the trim, zipper, collar and facings and set about changing the look. I rounded the corners on the neck and hem edge of the front. Then I added rectangles with rounded corners to the sleeve hems, back of the neck and to the front as plackets for the buttons. The collar I revamped that section into a pocket. Then I added some sea glass buttons. The look I think is more me. Unfortunately the jacket is still a little tight, It was snug before the alteration as well. I think it will make a neat jacket for the boat.
