The original purple was a bit "bluer" and this one is a bit "plummer" but I was really pleased when it came out of the washing machine all richly coloured again. I should have taken a photo before because the colour was really washed out and faded.
The sleeve edges were frayed. So of course, I thought I would hide them with some tatted lace. Yes, that's the size 10 purple edging I showed you two posts ago. I thought size 10 would be more hard-wearing for the sleeves. I still edged them with ribbon first so they wouldn't get worse and then attached the lace on top.
Sad old frayed sleeve edge
Freshly re-hemmed with ribbon
Ta-dah! New old coat!
