Sewist: Jenny

Project: Jacket
Fabric: Faux fur
Lining: Rayon twill
Closures: AAF button
Pattern: McCalls7847
Notes: Jenny had a lot of fun making this jacket and was pleased that it involved no hand sewing! This McCalls pattern was designed for faux fur, eliminating all the interfacing and tailoring techniques found in other coat patterns. She highlighted the look of the coat by choosing to position the lighter color fur shading as center front, center back, and sleeve center which gave this coat a great balanced look. A single elegant button with a loop closure completes the look. Jenny has received lots of admiring compliments from fellow students, family, and total strangers. We're certain she will be receiving lots more!
