Porcelain complexion, congrats and if you can email me your address, I will send it out quickly. Next, I was reading a post from Grace at Stripes and Sequins and she showed this photo of Olivia Palermo in this fur vest.
Great coat, but it looks like it could swallow me because it is so big. I sometimes use the fur on projects, but this coat has great character. So, when I saw the Olivia Palermo vest, it gave me the idea to take this coat and make it into a vest. The outcome is fabulous. Follow these steps to make your fur vest.
|First: Using a seam ripper seperate the lining of the arms before you cut.|
|Second: Cut the arms off the coat. You will resew the lining to the fur later with the sewing machine. You can also hand sew it if you can not use a sewing machine.|
|Third: Using the seam ripper seperate the edge of the front of the coat. Then try the coat on to decide the amount that needs to be cut off.|
|Fourth: Sew the lining of the coat to the fur sides.|
|Can you even believe it?? I love it and will get so much use out of this vest. I also even used the sleeves for projects to be seen at a later date. I would love to hear what you think. Did you do anything fun over the weekend?|
