Faux Fur Coat Finished - Burda Style 10/2008 - 101
Here is the finished coat, this was such a fun project and both working with fur and this coat pattern were much easier than I had anticipated. It's true that it doesn't really get very cold here in Hong Kong - we get warnings when it gets to 10C (50F), but after 10 years of living here I am a complete wimp in the cold so it will definitely get some wear over the winter.
It's funny that fake fur coats seems to be popping up on blogs everywhere all of a sudden and I certainly had not planned on buying fur when I went fabric shopping last week - must be something in the air.
Anyway - pictures!
I decided to stick with the full length sleeves.
I added a fun printed satin lining from the stash.
I found this similar look online so decided to try it belted for a different look, I think this would be more successful with a thinner fur (or a thinner body!).
