Last sewing in 2016 - black fur coats for little miss and mommy
Ever since the summer went away I keep imagining a fur coat for Eva. It should not have been something hard and the pattern in the last issue of Ottobre for 2016 was just the thing.
I had real trouble fining the proper fur. Not the right color, not soft enough, nothing clicked... This black fur was kind of a compromise... I just had to pick something and black was an OK color, it was pleasant to the touch and kind of cheap but .... not really what I wanted. The price helped me decide to make one for myself as well. I used the pattern from 1/2016 from burda style magazine for me.
On the inside I used the left over fabric from the pink fall/spring coat with good thermal and moisture properties. The hardest thing was to make it close with a zipper and clear all the closing area from fur. That involved a bit of hand sewing.
