A Customer’s Inherited Fur Coat Gets Turned Into A Cape

Yesterday’s Snow Day turned into a Fun Day!

I was able to finish a custom order. The customer wanted her inherited fur coat turned into a cape. She already owns one of my suede capes and wanted me to recreate that feeling and look in fur!

To create the silhouette and keep the drape soft, I added four triangle lamb suede panels to the front and back.
The suede was custom matched to the colour of the fur and I added a covered suede button as the top closure.

I cut off about 10” from the original length of the coat. There already a swing in the back which added to the cape effect.

This cape is surprisingly comfortable, lightweight and warm.

I am making an effort to create more #sustainablefashion
