My first Altered Swing Coat

I've been itching to try altering clothes. My girlfriend gave me this sweet, longish blouse. So today I added a panel at the bottom, some trim on the collar and cuffs, then braided the trim fabric with some yarns and beads and offset that with one of my primitive faces. I like the results. Even wore it to the Business Association dinner tonight!
Now, I'm looking at what I can cut into next!
