DIY Zip-Off trench

This trend completely lends itself to DIY (and my favorite, restyling). I found this trench at Goodwill on the yellow tag day… so I paid 6 bucks for it! steal right? Anyway I used 2 long zippers (from Scrap in Portland, a great resource if you are here!) to make it across the entire length of the jacket. I drew a straight line across the jacket 1/2 ¬†way between the buttons to cut along. I finished the edges and put in the zippers… in total it took less then an hour, and honestly I get stopped all of the time to get compliments on this jacket… you should try it!
