The georgette blouse has a drawstring waist and dolman sleeves. The top is a bit short on me so I just left it loose for a more boxy look. It has so many colors in it. I think it's a versatile piece that can dressed up or down. I bought it because it looked brand new even though it's from the 80s. It has a cute little tassel on the front and back. They're a bit raggedy now that I've washed it but still cute.
I've had the coat for many years. It feels like a wool knit. It's vintage. It has the union label tag! I love the shape and how well it fits me. I can never pass up an item that fits my arms.
It has a gorgeous orange lining that is in need of repair or replacing. The buttons are beat up too. When I bought it, I had grandiose ideas of replacing the lining and buttons myself. That's not going to happen anytime soon. It looks fine wearing it as is.

What color should I change the lining to?
Leopard ? Zebra? Purple? Stick with orange?
What about the buttons?

Do you do clothing repairs yourself or leave it to the professionals?
