I was flipping through my latest Allure magazine, saw this vest, fell in love with it, and looked it up on the website posted.


Well......  Oddly enough, from the picture in the magazine, it looks sort of different; it looks more like a cropped vest, short and it didn't look like it wrapped around the front like it actually does.  I liked what I thought it was better than what it is....  heh... 

Anyway, onto the point.  I want to make what I thought it was; I bought some black fake fur on clearance once but never found a use for it, so I think this is it!  I have a question, though.  I have never sewn fake fur before, but I have looked up directions and how-to's, so that is not my question.  I'm a bit confused at the front, where the fur seems to be thicker than the body, you know?  How do you think is the best way to go about that?  Would I want to just use two different layers of fur?  Or a lapel type deal?  Any ideas?

It looks to me like the vest has a shawl collar.  If I were you, I'd make it with a layer of fur, a layer of lightweight interfacing, and a layer of some sort of facing fabric to give it shape but not make it too bulky.  I'd make the fur layer a little bigger than the facing and interfacing so the seam between the facing and the fur would be an inch or so under the collar and wouldn't show.

I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it. --Mae West
