Oh dear! this beautiful old velvet coat had seen better days and the fake fur collar and cuffs were all matted and dirty. Lots of bits of the lining and collar needed some bewitching stitching to get them back in place! It was a rescue job, but worth doing when you see the results! A long sable coloured fake fur added with a bit of extra lengthening of the hem and sleeves in the process, turned this into a real stunner. It is now parading proudly around Edinburgh with a whole new lease of life......all for £50!
