Faux Fur Coat with Fabric.com

Happy National Sewing Month! Recently, I participated in a really fun collab with fabric.com! I’ve noticed fur coats everywhere for Fall 2016, and so naturally, I wanted to make my own. Faux fur is so easy to work with, and it’s a whole lot more affordable to make your own coat!

*The faux fur I used from fabric.com is now restocked on the website! You can find it here!

For my lining I used this fabric, also from fabric.com. It looks like a dark green online but it’s really a slate grey.

Before you get started, head over to fabric.com to read my tips for sewing with faux fur. Don’t fear the fur! These tips will have you sewing up your own fur coat like a pro. At the bottom of my post (on fabric.com), you’ll find all of the fabulous faux fur options they have to get you inspired and started!

I made this coat using McCall’s Pattern M7257. I strictly followed the pattern, but I did shorten my coat a few inches. I only used about 2 yards of fabric total, costing about $60. I was really inspired by this coat I found on Nordstrom.com, and it’s going for $348. See guys, it may be a little pricey, but it’s totally worth it to make your own!

I’m really excited to pair this coat with skinny jeans and boots for a casual vibe as shown, but also style it with dresses and heels for all those fun holiday parties coming up on the horizon. I really love my new coat!

  3. Hello, your coat is beautiful! Did you make pockets? The pattern shows them made out of the fur, but I wonder if that is a better option than making them out of lining. Thanks. 🙂
