Added Jan 29, 2013
I just made a BurdaStyle gilet / vest using faux fur from Vancouver’s fabulous Fabricana shop and using BurdaStyle 7289. I wanted a snuggly winter vest to keep me warm! There are 4 darts in the fur and another 4 in the lining. I improvised the lining, adding a bar across the back for interest. The gilet is entirely hand sewn. I’m still debating whether to add 2 black leather closures to the front.
Faux fur, lining.
