It's almost Gulf War, which means it's time for alllll the alterations. This one concerns my red linen cotehardie with the navy blue trim:
The blue was because I was going to make a pair of red/blue oversleeves to wear with this, but I never got around to it.
I stripped off the blue trim and replaced it with red linen to match the body of the dress, replaced the gold buttons with silver ones I took off the Ikea Cotehardie, and then trimmed the neckline and sleeves with faux fur!
The fur's awfully rumply in this pic, I apologize. It's cut from a brown faux fur blanket I bought on clearance at Target last year for six dollars....and then promptly lost. It was in one of my fabric boxes the whole time. So it's a bit smushed. A quick run through the dryer will fluff it right back up again, though.
