Sewing Project! Fur Skirt & Cape Set

In the sew_loli lovejournal community, there was a monthly challenge contest for the month of February (actually due the first Sunday in March), the theme being Furry February. I wasn't actually planning to make anything for it, but I found myself in Joann Wednesday night browsing the fake furs anyway. I ended up coming home with 2 yards of luxuriously soft chocolate brown curly fur, and 2 yards of brown lining, as well as 3 yards of pink bunny toile and a little over a yard of a fabulous St Patrick's Day print. Upon planning my project, I decided upon something a little different from my initial intention, and threw aside the lining fabric in favor of making instead a reversible set using the toile as the "lining"! I absolutely love how it came out, and I'd love to hear what you think as well!

I made a cape and skirt set, with detachable bunny ears and tail, and a detachable bow. In total, there are 6 pieces (counting the 2 ears separately! XD).

If you'd like to see even more photos, my sew_loli community post is here!

Oh I love to sew and adore finding other lolita sewers! This is very cute although I think I like it more with the pink out (the all furs a little to much for me). I also love the ears!!!

I do as well, which is why I'm so glad I decided to make it reversible! (My original plan was just to have the fur side, and lined with normal lining fabric!) This is so much more fun and versatile as well! But I do think the all-fur side would be darling with a kinari/cream blouse and kinari x brown socks with brown shoes. I think I will coordinate it like this at some point. ♥
