Description

I made this faux fur wrap to keep warm on my recent wintery wedding day. I’d love to say I made the dress too, but alas did not! I based this wrap on a big jelly bean shape and lined it in satin, with grosgrain ribbon to tie it. It ended up being a little wide, but did the job nicely! My tip for cutting faux fur – do it outside if possible, and cut it upside down, to avoid cutting the fibres!

    Very elegant. The fur perfectly complements the dress and accessories. You certainly make a beautiful bride.

    It looks great (I’ve seen RTW faux fur wraps at work and those definitely don’t look better than yours…). And your wedding pictures are very pretty.

    How much fabric would you say you used for this? I’ve seen some lovely faux fawn fur, but it’s very expensive and I don’t want too much left over!

      You know it was hardly any! I bought 50cm and had a heap left over. My fabric was about 130cm wide, with the nap of the fur going across the fabric. My approximate finished dimensions (bearing in mind it’s a slightly curved shape) were about 110cm at the longest point, and about 25cm deep. It was a little wide for my shoulders, so 100cm wide would probably have been perfect. I’ve a photo of my rough pattern i can upload if that helps – I just drew it freehand and added seam allowances and cut it on the fold. Definitely do a muslin shape first if your fur is pricey! Hope that helps!
