Smart Sewing Fake Fur : Make Your Own Superluxe Fake Fur Jacket (Hardcover) (Kenneth D. King)
about this item
Faux fur is a perennial favorite for the colder months, even though many sewers avoid working with it, because they think it's too difficult to manage. Kenneth King proves that's not true. He began to work with faux fur after remodeling a variety of real fur coats. Taking apart these fur coats enabled him to study the techniques that furriers use to construct them. Surprised at how simple these techniques were, he then experimented with them on faux fur, to excellent effect. The techniques Kenneth uses work on real fur as well, but faux fur is less expensive and politically correct. This class covers techniques specific to sewing fur. Kenneth assumes you have a basic understanding of garment construction, so the focus is on the techniques for fur. The class covers tools and materials; choosing a pattern; layout and cutting; the basic seam; sewing darts; the slit pocket; and finishing and lining the piece.
