Description

From the very first time I saw this fabric in the shop, I knew I had to make something out of it for Niki. She’s a sucker for all things furry or hairy.
I decided to make a coat out of it with a wide lapel that show the furry inside of the fabric.
As Niki is super-pregnant, I didn’t put any closure on it for now. She changes size every day, so I’ll add it when she’s back to normal :)

Material Notes

Denim with ‘teddy bear skin’ on the inside. It’s super soft!

    That is really nice. Its 15 degrees C here today set to min of 5 so I’m enjoying hiding under the covers surfing burdastyle for warm things…

      Hiding under covers? I have it on good authority that you’re more of a bed-jumping type :)

    what a great work! and the fabric also! I look forward to see more things from you. I hope to finish my waistcoat soon. I still take lessons and learn a lot of it. I like that you put your own label on the jacket! Greatings from Rotterdam

      It feels great to be back Ralf, thanks for your kind words. I hope to publish some more projects in the future. I’ve never stopped sewing, but I made the mistake of taking a course. I learned nothing and ended up wasting much time that I could have used making things.
      So I am back to doing that now :)
