Description

This is not a fur scuba, but a fur coat over a Burda scuba dress. The fur coat is Vogue 2934 made from astrakan with a luxurious silk lining. The dress is Burda scuba dress 09/2012 #121. This pattern is hard to beat in terms of ease and style. The shoulders came up a little bulky, but it decided to use this to advantage. I popped this dress on today for work and figured, hey I’m just going to wear a fur coat with it. I recommend this approach. That’s what clothes are for!

Material Notes

The jacket is made from astrakan with a silk lining.
The dress is made in ponte jersey for the side panels and non stretch woven fabric for the front panel. I used an exposed zipper technique (which needs a little refining).
This is a great combo and I look forward to wearing the jacket with lots of outfits and to wearing the dress again.

    Gorgeous, I love both the jacket and dress. I have made up the jacket in a fun faux fur so far and I will eventually make this dress. Both pieces look lovely on you x
