I knew this jacket had to be mine the minute I saw it at my local Goodwill store! It was my size, in perfect condition, and only $5! Thinking it was too good to be true I made a closer inspection and noticed that a few buttons were missing, and a few others were loose. That seemed to be the only thing wrong. (Kind of sad that someone got rid of a perfectly good lime green jacket because of a few missing buttons!) I bought it, washed it, then got to work fixing it. I decided that I wasn’t too fond of the buttons currently on the jacket (kind of boring if you ask me),
and it would be pretty difficult to try to find a replacement button that matched the others so I cut off ALL the buttons. Then I had to decide what type of button to replace them with. I ran across some of this lovely laminated cotton houndstooth print that I had in my scrap bin. The color matched perfectly so I used a button cover kit from Dritz, covered some buttons in the laminated cotton,
stitched them onto the coat, and voila, a practically brand new coat!
I absolutely love this jacket and wear it anywhere I can! I’ve also gotten a lot of compliments on it, so I must not be the only one that loves a lime green jacket! It’s the perfect jacket for spring too!
