Like the headline says, now I own a green fur coat! Hancock Fabrics had a sale and that fur was marked down to a price I just couldn’t pass up. I had already decided that McCalls Pattern 6800 was something i needed to have. It’s for a princess seamed coat in varying lengths and collars.
As a pattern review, I chose View C without the belt. Fur is not a recommended fabric for this pattern, but i do what I want! 🙂 So green fur (faux, of course) was used for the outer shell, and blue crepe back satin for the lining. The instructions were clear and easy to understand. I made a muslin of the outer shell first, and chose the smallest size. My deviations were omitting the belt, belt loops, and buttons, I added a fur hook at the waist, and bagged the lining. I was hesitant about the green at first, but I love this coat! It’s heavy and soft and warm, and will be delightful to wear come January. I’ll end with the obligatory spinning pic 🙂
