I had always admired my friend Amy’s cute jacket when she wore it to work. I always said that it looked great on her, but she wasn’t so sure. So, when I was leaving NZ to come to Australia, this was her surprise leaving gift for me. Sadly, i’ve since lost touch with Amy, i’d love her to know that I’m still wearing the jacket she gave me.

It’s been in dire need of some TLC for some time now, so this weekend I sat down and gave it a makeover. I’m amazed that I hadn’t done it sooner. There are now five shiny, colourful buttons instead of four cheap lookiing black ones, and what a difference it makes. I also spent some time sewing the lining to the coat, and mending a pocket.
