My Homemade Faux Fur Capelet!

Added Jan 3, 2013

I love vintage styles, especially faux fur, so in search of the perfect faux fur capelet, I did not find anything satisfactory so I decided to make my own.

This is a non sleeve, capelet with a fur tie at collar.

I have worn it a few times already, and it keeps me so warm and is complimentary to my wardrobe. I love it!

Material Notes

I purchased 2 yards of this material from my local Joann’s store. I used medium/ heavy weight interfacing on collar, and used an old satin sheet as the lining material.

I drafted out the shape and size in which I wanted the capelet to be along with the collar.

In order to get the perfect half rounded neckline when cutting, I traced a can of tuna on paper and cut it in half then pinned it to fur before cutting.
