...This was supposed to be a Christmas present for Gabe, but I just couldn't wait! In fact, I couldn't wait to share it with y'all either, so without further ado...
A few months ago Gabe came to me with an idea. He wanted me to make him a coat. And not just any coat, this bad boy was going to be a military coat.
He brought me a sketch, and we went to the fabric store. Then we came across this super fun digital camouflage and he was inspired to change his design some.
I decided on sherpa lining to give it extra warmth. The patches and skull buttons were things Gabe picked out and I told Gabe they were too expensive. Then they went on sale, BOGO, so I went back and got them!
And I mean if you're gonna have buttons, why not have the coolest buttons ever!?
Which brings us to these awesome toggle buttons. I sewed them on with elastic thread so they would have some stretch when he buttoned them.
Now, if I can just convince him to wear it without the collar popped we'll really be in business :-).
