Forever 21 Coat Restyle

I recently picked up this coat on sale for a steal at Forever 21 ($6.00).  I liked it a lot, but got annoyed that the buttons didn't line up. Once I removed the buttons (so I could line them up properly), I fell in love with just having one set.  I have also been searching for things to use lace on (thanks to my great grandfather I have literally hundreds of yards of vintage lace trim) and this seemed like the perfect opportunity! After much pinning and fidgeting and pinning some more, it was done. 
 I love embellishing/personalizing things like this!



  1. Wow, this looks great! The coat was lovely before but adding that personal touch makes it really stand out!

  2. Shut up. That is freaking amazing. I might totally have to steal this idea a little bit! Brilliant lady! Xo Lori

  3. Outstanding refashion! I love the black lace on the gray coat.

  4. That is great. I love turning plain items into something special. How did you apply your lace?

  5. Thank you ladies for all the love!

    LoriLynn, please steal away :)

    Vintage Honeybee, I used my machine and sewed around the edges of the lace.
