Upcycled Sweater Coat

Artist Statement: Many colors of richly hued russet, claret, burgundy, purples and reds adorn this complex creation. What a great piece to wear when drinking red wine! A kaleidoscope of conversations....

The empire waist is brought together with a randome assortment of buttons - 7 in all - although only 4 function. Elegant bell sleeves tickle the wrist. Warm and fuzzy abounds!

This sweater is a size M/L. I'm finding my sizes are running generous - not junior sizing for sure - think missy.

Repurposed from a collection of 8 different sweaters.

Some actual measurements:
Length from base of neck: 33"
Sleeve length (underarm to wrist): 20"
Empire waist (12" from center of shoulder to just below bust):36"
