Several posts back I ranted and raved over Chanel's 2010 Fall/Winter collection. I immediately became obsessed with the fur vibe and decided I needed to make a fur coat for myself. Well, seeing as I live in Southern California, it just never gets cold enough to need a full-on fur coat (just a little overkill), so instead I decided to make a vest.
While fur is a little bit of a challenge to work with, I'm pretty happy with how the vest turned out. Now the only thing is I have leftover faux fur and I'm trying to decide what to do with it. Maybe make a small fur capelet? A crazy shaggy handbag? I don't think anyone else I know would actually wear faux fur so I don't think I could make something for somebody else...Any suggestions?
p.s. - Since I've been making clothing without using patterns, I've decided I need an adjustable dress form. I spend too much time trying to pin fabric together and then try it on, when it would be WAY easier to drape the fabric over a dress form that has been adjusted to my measurements. Something else to add to the list of things I want to buy, but since I'm in "saving for a house" mode I don't think I'll get around to it any time soon.
