Being an Environmentalist: Upcycled Clothing Coat

Browsing through Etsy today I see a lot of great clothing made from old sweaters or other re-worked materials. Here is my favourite find: 

Military Style Sweater Coat by REMODEL $195 I especially love the toile detail in the belt and the pattern on the buttons:

Made from vintage sweaters and buttons. I would love to have this coat to go over my dresses when going to a show/symphony or similar. I especially love the toile detailing in the belt - it looks like the exact pattern that I have on my sofa cushions!
