I like the cotton red coat even it was too blank, I believed I can turn it into my style just use a few techniques.
I found 2 macerated buttons.
Then I need to do some hand-stitches to match the buttons. First use some black color thread to made the basic shapes.
Next, need to adding some blue color to the shapes.
I also did some stitches on the cuffs.
On the back too.
Now, the front, love it!
