Description

Let me just start off by saying I love this coat. I would jump up and down on Oprah’s couch like a crazy woman for this coat. It makes me happy just to look at it, and to touch it makes my day. I love it so much that I actually feel paranoid wearing it out for fear that some Peta idiot is going to pour paint on me because it looks and feels absolutely like real fur. But wear it out I do, because I love this coat!

See http://www.fehrtrade.com/gallery/200/super-furry-animal for waaaay more photos and also my Tips on sewing with faux fur!

Material Notes

100% acrylic faux chinchilla fur from fabric.com (linked from my site above) which is ultra luxurious and such fabric porn!

    I understand your PETA fear because lets face it, there’s a lot of hypocrite models and others out there who just don’t give a s**t anymore….when LOOK! we have great alternatives….I’m a big fan of faux fur. Your jacket is gorgeous! I also would jump up and down on a couch for it, I love it too!

    ohhhh soooo gorgeous. i know which fur that is too— i’ve used it before for the cuffs and collar of a velvet coat and it looks so real that i’ve gotten dirty looks from my vegetarian friends! great job, so professional.
