Here it is in its full 'before' glory:
A little on the 'riotous' side for me!
So I set about de-blinging it (or should that be un-blinging?!)
I removed all the ornamentation from the breast pockets (and there was a lot of that!)
And added one of the spare buttons from the inside of the shirt.
Then I looked at the epaulettes. That had to be doctored too. So I removed the jewel.
And added yet another button to the shoulder.
I am so much happier wearing it now!
