When she was in college, Olivia's mother, Liz, made this wool tweed coat for her. The warm coat and its lively lining were perfect for a student living in windy Boston. Now Olivia and her mom both sew at AAF, one of several mother-daughter pairs. Recently, Olivia decided to do some alterations to the coat. She added a nearly invisible gusset in the under sleeve and side seam to make the coat a bit more roomy. And she accessorized it with a newsboy style Cap from Marcus Weavers in Ireland. This is a good example of how well-crafted garments created at AAF can last for years and remain in style.
