DIY Cropped Fur Jacket

DIY Cropped Fur Jacket
When I spotted this vintage fur cape I had to gasp.  The pattern was so unique, vintage yet very modern so I fell in love before I noticed the price tag which was mistake number one because at that point the justification started it’s ugly little wheels turning.  Needless to say I danced all the way to my car.

Because it was so big I knew I could get a lot of projects out of it so the cutting began.  Using Butterick pattern B4929 leaving out the buttons and using this awesome wool from Mood (my new best friend) I created this cute little jacket with a removable collar also seen here.

Jeans- Habitual other color found here
Top-Loft dress worn as a tunic
Heels- Vionnet (rose on sale here)
