Second Life for a Suit I am not sure if this thread belongs on this forum, but I guess that those who are interested in clothes and tailoring will appreciate this DIY project: turning a suit into a coat for a (my) little girl. Some of you might have seen this already on Sator's The Cutter and Tailor forum. My girlfriend (not a professional tailor) is the maker of this coat for our daughter. I took the pictures, wrote the text (including errors"”feel free to correct those), was responsible for the dissection (destruction) of the suit, and helped pick lining, buttons and other details.
