Faux Fur Made by My Dad

When we went back home to Toronto for Xmas, my Mom brought out the faux fur jacket that my Dad had made for her ages ago.  He was an architect, interior designer, avid photographer and also used to sew clothes for himself (his own suits), for my Mom (maxi dresses), and for my sister (dresses). Everything would fit perfectly.  The petite size of this jacket is well suited for me, now and it's a nice addition to the faux fur trend we've been seeing this season.  Who knew, 20 years later, I'd be able to wear it.

Have you added any faux fur to your wardrobe?

I have a faux fur shawl and that's it! I want more. Vintage pieces are always the best :)

What a stunner- vintage, family items like this have so much value, inherent and for your wardrobe! I can't wait to see how you mix it in with some newer items...and happy new year!

That is so cool!!!! I've been obsessed with faux furs ever since JLo wore one in her 'Feelin so good' video back in the day. And your dad making it makes it even more awesome.
Happy New Year!

That is so cool and that jacket is amazing. I have a faux fur vest that I love and a snood that I haven't wore yet. I would love to add a jacket.

That jacket is amazing! Your dad could make quite a business for himself making those today and selling them! Super jealous you have such a fashion + sewing savvy dad!

How LUCKY to have an amazing dad!!! My dad doesn't even know how to sew a button! I love it when I can wear the clothings my mum passes down to me :)
