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 going.to 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 but.it 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
