When you make your own clothes, it allows you to take the “special occasion” side of the closet out of the equation. That’s because every piece in your closet becomes special which over time your entire wardrobe is pretty spectacular. That means a quick run to the cleaners in a fur is business as usual. When I picked up this faux shearling from moodfabrics.com I had to ask myself, do I need another fur in my closet? If I was shopping retail, the answer would be unequivocally no, but lucky for me I have an arsenal of ideas and have yet to reach fur nirvana.
The pattern used was vintage Simplicity 6632 with 8″ added to the length.
