Lucky day at the thrift store

wool sport jacket detail |

I wasn’t necessarily looking for more wool sport jackets to use for projects, but I found several at the thrift store this week that really caught my eye. After washing and drying them, one felted nicely (and became a comically-shrunken jacket), so I’m excited to do something interesting with it.

I even found a nice long London Fog trench coat, which, from what I can track down, was made prior to 1976. One could spend hours tracking down this sort of information…for me, it’s good enough to know that it’s vintage. Once it’s turned into a jacket, I’d like to treat it with a waterproofing finish to help keep a little dog dry in wet weather.

Looking forward to repurposing these unique fabrics into something new!
