Definitely made a bespoke, one of a kind coat ...

I recently picked up a posh, brand new, hand made winter coat for our lil Bess pup.  A total bargain at 50p from a Charity Shop, I gave it a wash through in the machine and I was excited to try it on her for size. I fiddled and faffed with the Velcro fasteners until it fitted just right and was just about to stand back and admire my thrifty buy and one very posh pup when I was deafened by raucous laughing, 
"ha ha Bessie's wearing a cape, super Bess, hey come and have a look at this Mum's bought Bessie a cape". 
"It's NOT a cape"! 
No one was listening to me, with all the hysterical laughter Bessie had got over excited and was jumping from chair to chair ... "so OK, it may look a little bit like a cape" :/
Undeterred I set about trying to make the 'cape' more
 'bespoke coat' so back to the charity shop I went and bought a tired and ripped poncho for 50p.  A snip here, tuck there and several stitches later I do believe I have definitely made a bespoke coat that it is one of a kind! I haven't shown the family yet but as you can see from Bessie's expression below I'm sure they will be thinking the same as her 

"You can not be serious, like OMG"!!!
