Vintage Buttons & Braid


This favourite navy coat was beginning to look a bit, well, DULL, so I raided my vintage sewing supplies.  The gorgeous folkloric braid had been bought by my Mum sometime back in the 70s and the jolly red buttons came from a huge biscuit tin of buttons from my Nan (which reminds me of the Peter Kay joke about the joy on discovering a huge biscuit tin at your Nan's and the disappointment when you find it only contains buttons!!)
