Cape Coat DIY

I have been wanting a cape coat for the longest time but haven’t been able to find one that suits my style. While I was searching through my Grandma’s closet the other day I found this cape sweater. It was missing a few buttons, but I knew I could give it a little bit of a facelift.



Before, the buttons were a gunmetal color with an anchor stamped on them. Definitely not my style! So, instead of trying to find similar buttons I decided to cut them off and sew on new ones. I’m not crafty at all but sewing on a button is extremely easy. I purchased these gold-trimmed, black onyx faceted buttons to dress it up.



It is amazing to see how something as simple as replacing the buttons brought this cape to life.
