I am going to share with you today 2 makes or rather one make and one refashion both of which happen to be grey. Actually they are grey because I absolutely love this colour. It works as a great neutral with so many colours and I find myself drawn constantly to fabrics with grey tones.
First the make is a BurdaStyle pattern;
Faux Fur Coat 01/2016 #122
The fabrics I used are;
A lovely long grey faux fur from Lincraft and this lovely polyester satin as the lining. This time I was extra careful with cutting the fur.
NOTE: Make sure when cutting the fur fabric you only cut the backing fabric NOT the fur this will ensure a good finish.
This is a lovely jacket to wear it was a really quick sew. The pattern is simple to make ,the only thing to remember is to vacuum often the fur gets everywhere !!!
The next grey interlude is a refashion well actually two but they started out the same. It started with the purchase of 2 grey artificial suede jackets. One a size medium and one a size large. They were at a factory outlet .
As you can see if you look closely the jackets have a collar and lapel made from the reverse of the suede. I didn’t like this feature so unpicked them both and decided to remove the collar and keep the lapel once it was reversed on the medium jacket. Both jackets had a band at the back as a design feature I removed it from the medium jacket as I was keeping it as a jacket and I wasn’t a fan of the look.
With the large jacket I removed the collar and lapel and joined the jacket with a centre front seam. I altered the back band to have more shaping, and removed the sleeves so it became a sleeveless dress.
My positioning of the camera caused this artistic shot. What do you think?
Hope you are enjoying whatever you are doing, and getting lots done.
