Wardrobe Basic Sewalong - Faux Fur Vest

Let's move to #8 on the list, the faux fur vest, since the weeks of winter are winding down, my thoughts were to move this item up on the list.

Let's look at inspiration from RTW

Finding some possibilites for your vest?

Now it is fabirc time:

Let's plan on a Link party next week for updates on what you have sewn.  For those without a blog, I will start a Flickr group this week for posting pics (if you would like) and you can link with the picture URL.



  1. Wonderful possibilities! Can't live without my fur vest. It seems to work with (almost) everything.

  2. I like the Flickr idea (as one of the blogless - man that sounds like some terrible disease, doesn't it!).
    I might need a little technical assistance. Let me know when it's up and if I get stuck I'll send out a call.

  3. Oh looking forward to this one... it is a little out of my comfort zone so it will be good to try something new :)Thanks for the ideas Lori. I'm not exactly sure what a link party is but I'm looking forward to joining in.

  4. I love reading your blog. Your blog post is very useful and adds insight for me. Thank you for sharing this information.
