This is my favourite make from 2018.
It was one of the first makes of the year, using a free sewing pattern that I amended. I adjusted the pattern so that I could make the bottom half of the sleeves, and bottom half of the coat in faux fur and the top half in wool.
This coast is the first item I made using faux fur.
In order to reduce the amount of shedding of the fur I traced the pattern pieces onto the back of the fabric first. And when I cut the patterns out I cut the backing more than I cut the fur.
I would like to make this coat again. With Leopard print faux fur.
And I would add on the closure snaps when I make it again. Although I am happy I left them off the first time, they are a missed feature when needing to keep the cold out.
