the Kerr coat
[ sold ]
sleeves are 24.5" long
13" around bicep
9.75" around cuff
a rare nostalgia offering~
I began working on and wearing
this coat about 12 years ago.
recently unearthed it and took
the time to bring it back to life.
it is worn in the most lovely way,
and feels comforting & familial,
like borrowing a friend's coat.
11 vintage buttons close it in front.
it has two frankenstein pockets,
stretch panels in the arms for a
neat fit, and hundreds of
stitches & memories. the script
on the back is from a collection
of letters I saved from a dumpster
many years ago & silkscreened. this
would be best gently worn or living
with a crafty person, who can
continue to mend it as it will
need over time.. more photos in
