##While shopping for fabric to make my Leopard Trench, a company sent me an incredibly silky and luxurious sample of faux chinchilla. Even though it wasn’t what I was looking for at all, it was so soft that I couldn’t stop playing with it. I put it around my wrist and pictured it as the cuff of a rich blue coat. After that, I had to have the coat I saw in my imagination.
navy blue cotton velvet, fake chinchilla fur, embroidered quilted brown taffeta lining for body, navy blue satin lining for sleeves
