MUCH of Beryl Bleys' clothes throughout her life were handmade by her sister Margaret Seeney.  

However, there is one number that has stayed in the closet for over three decades and this weekend, it came out for a wear.  

"My sister made this coat for me before she died in 1986," she said.  

"I have never worn it before as I always thought it was too loud."  

But early this month, with the slightly cool weather, it was the perfect finish to Mrs Bleys' outfit.  

"It has a very sentimental value," Mrs Bleys said.  

"I couldn't part with it after all this time because Margaret made it.  

"She was a dressmaker in Monto for many years."  

The coat consists of patterns made of the colours purple, yellow and green.  

"I gave her the material and she did the sewing," Mrs Bleys said.  

She said the coat now has the potential to now make regular appearances.
