Color can make a difference

Yesterday my son’s girlfriend showed me her new bought winter coat. It is a nice wool black coat with large black buttons and a funky woven belt.

In my view there was missing something, so I suggested that I could sew the buttons back on but with a matching green from the belt, instead of the original black thread they were sewed on.

Girlfriend thought it was a good idea and see what a different color thread can do.





  1. Wow, Els, the difference is amazing! What a great idea.

  2. Perfect touch, Els! It takes a master’s eye to see that the smallest detail can make a big difference.

  3. Wow, I had no idea … the color adds just enough funkiness to the coat to make it young, stylish, and match the belt. Must remember this …

  6. It looks so much balanced now with the color thread matching the belt! Great idea, Els!

  8. That worked great, Els! And if it becomes “ho-hum” rather than a statement in the fashion after-life, changing it is a snap. Nice….

  9. I have the urge to add a little green charm to the zipper pull on the pocket.
