How-To: Cape Coat Refashion


Turn a boring or ill-fitting thrift store find into a cute, vintage-inspired cape with this cape coat refashion tutorial from Lana Red!

I bought this coat a couple of years ago in a thrift store, and even though I really like the fabric and color, the coat just didn’t seem to fit me right. But I just never wanted to get rid of it, because it is so pretty :)

So I decided to see what else I could make of it. I stared at it for a (very) long time, and then realized that it could easily be turned into a cape coat.
