Short faux fur jacket. 01/2014#123

Added Jan 5, 2014

Antrim, Co Antri...






I have had this blue faux fur for that long i have forgotton what i bought it for lol. I loved this short faux fur pattern as soon as i saw it in januarys issue. . I decided to make it up in the blue to test run the pattern (muslin). I did,‘nt want to order fabric and then hate the jacket. I was actually never wear this but.i do like it. I have ordered frog closures for it as i think that’ll look good on it. I found it very wide so i put two darts into the back and the lining.which helped. The collar is quite wide and it takes a bit of getting used to has a 1950’s vibe to it because of this which i love . This is a good we pattern and it made up really quickly. X

    This looks like a fun jacket to make. You wear it so well. The color matches the dress perfect. Did you buy the materials at the same time? I will in the future have to try to make jackets to match. Its looks good!

      Thank you for your lovely comment izbott. I bought the faux fur a couple of years ago and the dress fabric recently. I made the dress and i was going to make a shrug to go with it when i remembered the faux fur. I was delighted when the colour matched. I decided to do the crop faux fur jacket out of this months issue to test the pattern. I really liked it when it was finished so i bought white faux fur for another one x

      Thanks kisses, it actually turned out well and for a muslin it’s very wearable. I love different things anyway and this is certainly different x

      Happy new year chula and thank you. I do really like it now and i will wear it once the black frog closures arrive. I think the same as you. This would look so good over a black dress and with a top and jeans. Its not really heavy enough to wear out now. I wanted to wear it on new years eve as it looked so good with the dress but it was baltic out and i already had the flu all over xmas. I popped my big fur coat on and stayed warm lol x
