Description

This was a project for a Christmas present for one of my mother’s friends. I had never attached sleeves to anything before and I wanted to try working with faux fur. The challenge was the fleece stretching. I had to baste the sleeves first and should have done the same for the shoulders. There was some gathering I didn’t like. The fur was challenging because I had to hand sew the final attachment to the collar. Mom gave it to her friend early and she cried. I hate when I make little old ladies cry.

Tan fleece and faux fur.

    Thanks so much again. I’m such a beginner and this was my first pattern. I was so pleased that I attached the sleeves. It seemed such a daunting task. But the real challenge was hand sewing the final attachment for the faux fur.

      The faux fur was very soft and cuddly. Thank you so much for your comments.
