I finally finished my blue and green playa coat. This is the first fake fur coat that I sewed entirely from scratch. This coat is based upon McCalls 5092 in the medium size (size 14-16), but after making a muslin mock up, I found it was HUGE, like a cape. I took out somewhere between a quarter and a third of the width of the fabric in the skirt. I also narrowed the underside of the dolman sleeves considerably because dolman sleeves and backpacks are not a good combination. Plus, I haven't liked dolman sleeves since 1989. I like the way one can flip up the collar for when it gets really cold.
