The Big Finish – Completing the Fantasy Fur Jacket
The final installment to the epic series of posts on making this hairy beast! We’ll be covering lining the jacket, as well as final details in this post.
Choosing a suitable lining was a bit of a challenge here, as the outside was so distinctive. I stumbled upon this plaid taffeta at one of the jobbers I frequent. It wasn’t ideal, but the colors worked well with the fur, so I took a chance.
On further reflection, I decided that the wrong side of the fabric worked better than the right–it has a Frank Lloyd Wright feeling to it.
I cut the interlining from the same cotton flannelette as I interlined the jacket with–this will give the jacket more warmth, and will beef up the fabric so it looks more luxurious. The black patch is a welt pocket, as one can never have too many pockets.
