There is just something about wearing fur that makes an outfit instantly glamorous. And if you don’t believe me, check the winter 2012/2013 tend reports. This piece can add just the right amount of glitz to a casual t-shirt and jeans look or keep your evening ensemble classy with a furry accent. If you have real fur to reuse or want a faux fur vest without breaking the bank this post is for you!
Now I made this particular vest for my 1 year old daughter, but it can easily be replicated for an adult.
My inspiration for this post was an outfit for sale at Macy's with a cute little baby size fur vest for over $50, which is insane considering this vest cost less than $5 and took less than an hour to make!
Step 1: Materials
Faux Fur (any color) or real fur of choice
Lining fabric (any material)
sewing machine or needle and thread
For a child size vest I used less than a quarter a yard of fur and lining fabrics, so this vest cost me less than $5!
I would guesstimate 1/2 to 3/4 yard for an adult vest.
