Description

I wanted to make this jacket but only had enough fur to make a vest so I simply omitted the sleeves and lined to the edge.

Faux mink and stretch satin for lining.

    Really pretty. How did you cut the fur? Any sewing tips?

      I traced my pattern onto the backing with a wax pencil and then cut through the backing only – that really cuts down on the mess. Use 1/8" seam allowances wherever you can (provided you are using knit-backed fur – wovens need normal seam allowances) and just zigzag the edges together, pushing the fur towards the outside of the garment. In areas where you need wider seam allowances (neckline, facing/lining edges, armscye) trim the fur out of the seam allowances. The sewing is different but not hard!
