I finished my second playa coat, this time with really nice, thick fake fur. This is the identical pattern as by blue/green one I showed earlier, McCalls, 5092, but with a lot of reduction in the sleeve and skirt. It's still huge. I learned that sewing with really thick fur is much more challenging that sewing with thinner stuff. You NEED to trim the fur off of all of the seam allowances first, or you wont be able to get nice seams. There's no way I'd be able to fit the 4 layers under the presser foot of my sewing machine, required to attach the collar, if I didn't trim the seam allowances first. All that trimming takes several hours of snipping. I just used scissors for this, but there might be an easier way. I don't know.
