When I saw this soft buff cashmere coat for $1, I couldn't resist. Too petite for me, too frumpy for my sister, too damaged for resale--it's hung in my closet for months. I decided to "use it up" last night. I took apart the large pieces of cashmere, tossed the glossy metal buttons in the button box, and folded the silky lining for later. The pockets, turned inside out and cinched with ribbon, will make nice little jewelry pouches, I think.
Taking apart its vintage glamour gives me a big idea for my closet makeover.
