Oooh, with that collar part, you should make a faux vest!!! So use the fur part as the frontage, then get thick black straps and sort of.... do a loose criss cross to form the back/ shoulders etc..... would look really cool over a white singlet and jeans.

With the straps, criss cross them over each other sort of tight so if forms it's own... weave... kind of pattern??? I'm hoping this makes sense..... here is a TERRIBLE picture



So anyway... keep over lapping the THICK black straps (my pic shows them thin cos i suck at paint) so that it forms an almost solid back. Then pin and  cut out arm holes, and sew the loose straps together so that they still stay in place.

Uhm... you could also maybe use a heavy lace for the backing?? I like the strapping idea better for the whole Urban Jungle feel....

As for the balance of it; idunno... Tongue
