Sewing Fake Fur: Back and Sleeve Construction for a Fake Fur Jacket

Video: Threads magazine

Follow along as Threads Contributing Editor Kenneth D. King explains the steps for constructing the outer body and sleeves of a fake fur jacket in this installment of the Smart Sewing: Fake Fur series.

When it’s time to hem the sleeve, you’ll stitch through the bias strip rather than through the fur’s right side. Finally, sew the sleeve back seam, and hand-sew the hem facing in place.
