Fake fur is easy to sew, but my goodness it makes an unbelievable mess! I had pink fluff everywhere and was so relieved once the lining had gone in.
As I mentioned in my last post, I had to use a pattern where sizing wasn't crucial which is quite easy in outerwear. This one is from 01/2014 Burda, I didn't want too many seams to break up the look of the fabric so I eliminated that waist seam and made it hip length in case a whole coat of pink roses was too much!

I was really happy to find these large pink snaps in the Hong Kong garment district, not surprised necessarily because I suspect you can buy anything there, but it can be like looking for a needle in a haystack.
This project was so much fun to make (pink fluffy mess aside) and my sister adores it, it is a totally original piece and suits her personality perfectly.
