Here's my latest faux fur coat, in deep purple and black. I started with McCalls pattern 5092 (medium), but I altered it enough that I'm not sure you'd consider it the same pattern anymore.
The purple is much deeper and richer in person; my camera just can't seem to photograph this color right! It's got two pockets, a wide hood, and two pairs of hooks to clasp the front. It's fully lined in black and oh-so comfy and warm. The cut is a full swing coat with dolman sleeves. Because I designed the hood from scratch, I had to cut the hood three times before I was happy with it. The first hood was totally the wrong shape and the nap was going straight down which made it look funny in the front. The second one, I fixed the shape, and I cut it with the nap pointing straight back, which created this funny duck-butt looking seam in the back. The third time, I finally got the right shape and the nap going down and back diagonally.
I also sewed the hem twice to get it to drape properly, but in the end, it turned out just as I envisioned it. I'm shipping it out to it's new owner today.
