Oh this project…3 months of hard labor and I’m probably never going to wear this again (I’m satisfied just finishing it). Lots of work but so SO rewarding. The entire lining (minus the side seams) were sewn by hand and inserted into the vest by hand. I was quite turned around by the directions so they were totally discarded after i cut out my actual fur pieces.
Made using Vogue pattern V8838…more details on the blog… :)
faux fur, quilted silk lining
