FAIIINT Faux Fur Snood / FAIIINT Paneled Maxi Dress / COS Belt / Topshop Boots
Those of you that live in the UK will be well aware that, despite having lovely warm, sunny Spring weather last week, this week feels like winter all over again & today it has even decided to snow! Rather than feel miserable at the horrible day outside, I decided to take the opportunity to wear (hopefully for the last time till Autumn!) a couple of my favourite things that I made last year…
I brought this amazing faux-fur from an upholstery shop, as it was the softest, most realistic faux-fur I’d ever come across, nicer in fact than even the very expensive types you get in good fabric shops. I love the look of fur, but couldn’t wear real fur myself, so I love that this looks & feels just like the real deal. I brought it mainly to use for the removable collar on the black cropped tux jacket I made, but with quite a lot left over I decided to make this snood out of it too. Even though it’s such a simple little accessory & took no time or skill to make, I think it’s one of my favourites, I have worn it practically every single day over the last few months. Small details such as lining it with thin china silk, so that it wouldn’t make my neck hot & sticky like my other snoods do, mean it has become my go to neckwear for Winter & my other scarfs haven’t had a look in since I made it!
I had been looking for a maxi dress like this one almost all of last Autumn, I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for anywhere so decided to make this out of the bits of leftover jersey I had lying around. It has panels of a heavier ribbed jersey down both sides, this wasn’t a conscious decision, but more due to the fact I didn’t have enough of the plain cotton jersey I used as the main fabric left & this was spare! I love the way it turned out though, I think sometimes my best efforts seem to be the pieces I just knock together & take no care over!
