Once I did the buttons, however, I saw there were tiny moth holes throughout the coat. oh dear. I hadn't worn it for umpteen years. I put bits of blue painters' tape to mark wherever I noticed a hole and then proceeded to sew on sequins and seed beads, or sometimes tiny pearls over the area.
So, it's kinda weird, I guess. This traditional camel coat, with bits of flotsam and jetsam - only its really sequins and beads - laying all about. I decided to make a statement then and there, and took my Sewing Rebellion Badge and made it into a pin (brooch?) to wear on the lapel. Like a sign...or directions, maybe.
