Sewing Fake Fur: The Completed Fake Fur Jacket

Video: Threads magazine

Join Kenneth D. King, a Threads contributing editor, to celebrate the completion of a fabulous fake fur jacket.

Kenneth points out that he has used the same basic coat pattern for five coat examples. Because each one is made from a different type of fur, they look unique. Patterned or short-pile fur appears more classic and tailored. Fantasy fur and long-pile varieties offer an exuberant and playful vibe.

Closure options

Unorthodox closures work beautifully on fake fur, while ordinary buttonholes and small buttons may get lost in the pile. Kenneth shows an example with grommets and toggles. Another has a  large ring snap. Finally, there is a coat with giant hooks that fasten to rings.

One of the benefits of fake fur is that it is suitable for wear by any gender, and lends itself to a wide range of creative interpretations. Don’t hesitate to review the earlier chapters of this series and sew along with Kenneth, to make your own version.
