Faux fur cape with acetate lining. I used Butterick retro-reissue pattern 5032 and modified it somewhat to work with the bulky fur. More on my blog

    you look adorable! I like the fur you selected. tell me about the button – is it pearl? how did you manage the button hole with the thick fur ?

    I hope you went out someplace fabulous in this.

      Thank you. I’m plotting to get opera or ballet tickets so my husband will have to take me out.
      The button is from my stash. It’s a pearl finish w/ a gold-colored band around it. It’s a leftover from a suit I made for myself years ago. The suit is long-since gone (too small for me now), but it’s nice to find a purpose for the remaining button. The button hole was a giant pain. I pretty much just did a wide zig-zag on the ends and a more narrow one on each side, then sliced down the middle and tried to pull as much of the fur out as I could. Thank goodness the button hides it mostly.
