This is the final image in "new autumn wardrobe", and is not so much "new" as newly renovated! It's my fabulous long black wool coat - very Victorian style - and I have had it re-lined this year. The woollen outer part was in fine condition, but the lining had disintegrated to the point that every time I moved, I heard a ripping sound. Luckily, my Dad knows someone who does that type of repair at a most reasonable price : )

I would love a coat like that. I imagine re-lining a coat is quite tricky but certainly worth having done if it's an especially nice coat.

Yes, it is - lovely snuggly and warm! The coat would also cost a lot to replace, so getting it professionally re-lined was an excellent brainwave : )
