Remake an old favourite garment

The other project I did was to pull apart a nice over-jacket that I had bought.  It was in a stretch knit fabric with a chiffon gathered trim.  It was very cheap and as a consequence didn't last the season without terrible pilling which I couldn't remove.  So I cut it up and used the pieces as a pattern.My trim didn't sit the same as the old garment so I edged  it with satin bias binding and it looks fab.  I sewed two buttons on the front but you could also clasp it with your favourite broach.
