But I did get a great idea! I was thinking how on the Tim Gunn show they completely alter existing clothes and make almost new garments. When my mother died I inherited a lot of her clothes and among them this black cashmere coat. It’s too big for me, and too long, but I got the idea that if I shortened it to somewhere around the knee length it might work, and the bigness might be okay. It’s only a little too big.
When I pinned it to see, it looked great. The slight bigness works! I think anyway. Now I can’t decide if I should have it shortened to just below the knee or just above. I was thinking below, but if I shorten it to above it would make it a more casual, every day coat that I can wear it with jeans, and I’d love to wear it every day. It’s so soft and comfy.
