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!
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.
The results are in! Check out our winning submission.
Daydream about fall sewing with boho layers, oversized jackets, and a leopard pencil skirt.
