One piece of two, made for my friend A. for her Christmas gifts. Also, my beautiful daughter modeling (she is the same height as the recipient; thinner). Information about the garment at the bottom of the post.
One fur hook at neck, for closure. If the recipient wants more hooks installed I will do this gratis. It hangs very nicely but swings a little with movement.
Very insulating. It was quite cold when we walked to the coffee shop & phee, with her arms exposed, was perfectly warm.
In this case, my client selected and brought me the fabric and the lining. This is something I am often not into doing but it worked out great. This faux fur was quite a bit more challenging than YETI-riffic fur. Additionally, it required lining up not only a striped pattern, but a striped pattern in a scallop. Yeah, I know! A total challenge. However I lucked out with yardage spacing, and returned quite a bit of faux fur to the client who now is pondering what she might or might not want to make with it. Faux fur is fabulous, but it is also quite bulky. I think some boot liners/leg warmers would be choice!
The lavender satin the client chose was so pretty – and a nice weight, making for a garment with a lot of weight. Very delicious. I added in-seam pockets, also in satin.
Very silky fur! Phee is not so excited about being a model here. Can you tell?

EXTREME CLOSE UP
This faux fur had a nice drape. I drafted a self-facing for the jacket, which is flipped over here to show you the inside of the garment.
Phee & her DGAF face. I think I might start paying her to model. Children are more becoming when they smile!
wow, that is REALLY cool
I really do like to satin lining! What a perfect choice of color too. It balances the unique piece of clothing nicely. You’re so talented!
