Notes: Girls just wanna have fun with faux fur and Beth is no exception. She made this casual jacket after heavily modifying a Burda pattern. With an eye toward reducing the bulkiness of the faux fur, she first eliminated the back pleat. This was followed by replacing a double breasted front panel with a simple zip front. She added a scarf of her own design to complete the look. The vertical shading of the fur adds an extra dimension to this wonderful faux fur look. We can see her enjoying an après ski party on the balcony of an Aspen chalet and getting lots of compliments on this unique sporty jacket.
