DIY Faux Fur Sleeveless Coat

DIY Faux Fur Sleeveless Coat
Being the coat lover that I am, I know true spring weather is right around the corner.  I don’t want to yet retire my coat love until next winter, so I did the next best thing…………..A sleeveless faux fur and wool coat that will work well into spring.  I’ve never worked with faux fur before and always thought it looked a bit cheap, but this Persian lamb faux fur from moodfabrics.com has truly proved me wrong.  It feels fantastic, easy to cut and sew and is just down right luxe.  Coupled with this heavy weight Marc Jacobs wool, makes this such a chic coat that I plan to hold on to for quite a while.

The coat was made with Vogue V8865 view A with the following alterations:

-Used the bottom of view C
-Removed the sleeves
-Added a 1″ fibre filled band to the sleeve for a more exaggerated sleeve
