Severus and Coco
A friend on Flickr said she removed the velcro and stitch the jacket together. She scrunched the sleeves to make them shorter for Blythe's arms. I didn't bother, but good to know that it could be done.
I love the patches. They are Christmas themed, but could easily be painted over. You could even create tiny patches and sew them over then decals. The best feature is the working zipper.
