|I'm oh so fab in my fur shortie and mustard pants. Don't even bother looking at that blond.|
Well the plus side of making this Fur-osting project was that was super simple. No fitting needed, has about 5 seams and, if you follow the instructions, has no lining. I put a lining in it because All Coats Must Be Lined. Who wants to stare at faux fur backing anyway.

It was easy to make a lining using the body pattern pieces just check out Jen's easy peasy tutorial. Since this was a kimono sleeve I added 1/4" extra ease to the side seam area and 1/4" to where the cuffs would be sewn in. Also added the back pleat like the tutorial instructs.
The lining was inserted before sewing the faux fur cuffs on so that I could get a clean finish on the inside. I sewed one side of cuff to the self fabric, then hand sewed the other slide to the lining. I also hand sewed the lining to the hem.
The closure is also simple, two giant snaps.
On to the modeled pics.... me just chilling in the back yard.
