I have long admired sweater coats by Katwise. Her sweater coat tutorial (available on etsy) has gotten much wear and tear since I bought it over a year ago, but I haven’t yet created a coat with it. So when we were hit with 3 intense blizzards last March, I decided to spend my snowed-in hours doing just that. But that’s the thing with blizzards; you can’t just run to the local thrift shops and stock up on materials. So instead, I busted into my ever-growing stash of denim (thanks to everyone who keep donating their old jeans).
The resulting coats caused many blisters, a few tears, and yes, even a few curse words as the filter on my front-loading washer clogged with tiny bits of blue jeans and flooded the laundry room. It then proceeded to attempt arson from the lint trap in the dryer, but I was on it. In the end, it must be admitted that this particular coat is dangerous. But I absolutely love it.
