Fur and Denim

My first thoughts of a fur coat is often associated with a vision of a elegant dress or pant suit underneath.  But Marie Claire shows a different perspective in it's August 2015 issue.  The colors are bold and beautiful.

 Fur and denim is a great weekend outfit.

This second look is so 70's.  The shoulder wide collar, the over the knee boots, and the fringed purse.  I couldn't do the short, shorts though.

 These jackets also remind my of the 70's.  Cute, but a little to youthful for me.

Of course all of these looks are a little pricey.  But I can get "a look" for less with some faux fur. Lol

In my Mood Fabric stash, I have a yardage of faux fur that would be a great for a faux fur project this fall.

I'm thinking of using Burda Magazine, October 2008, coat 101 style.

Happy Sewing!


  1. That's perfect! In my favorite print, animal! I love the jeans styles too. especially the last one.

  2. I have to admit that I love the top "muppet" coat. All of you posting about it are converting me. But, I think I'm too big for it. I can't WAIT to see what you do!

    1. Me too, Rebecca.i picked the short hair faux fur for the same reason you mentioned. I will see how this one goes before considering something more audacious.

  3. I look forward to seeing this faux fur sewn. I am sure it will be gorgeous!

  4. Excellent choice and perfect for your Chicago winters!

    1. Yes, warm coats are a must for Chicago winters.
