Vintage fur : Remodel / Remake / Update
has anyone done this or seen it done well...?

* i confess, i started to cut up an old 1950's tibetan lamb coat that had been given to me and it literally started to fall apart in my hands...
...



oh well- better now than while i'm out wearing it...



anyone have any good reference photos they've found?
working with fur is actually more complicated than i had realized...
and having a coat remodeled can cost around $500-$600...
would be great to be able to do some simple things oneself...
