With fusible appliqué, buttonhole stitch and in between, you can bring that shabby coat to shabby chic. Birds, swirls and flower motifs will be part of the class design base. But bring any motif you would like to add. Buttons, beads, crystals lace or trims, anything we can layer we will! You will need a wool, cotton or denim coat with detached lining layers. NO POLYESTER. From plain to priceless, we will cover it all. Feel free to use any of my pattern motifs to decorate and embellish your coat. Check out our website to see some of my garments and patterns.
