We got a thing going on.
After much hemming and hawing (now there's a turn of phrase), I eventually settled down with a simple, straight forward coat pattern for my faux fur. McCall's 7257, view D. Although I did make it bigger. Who wants a skinny cow coat?! I used some scrap zebra flannel for the pockets (hehe). And made a removable collar/ scarf per Rhonda's suggestions here. So cute.

|~ it's a flannel shirt, mmmm ~|
I just love flannel shirts. Made from another Tina Givens pattern called Archie. I played around with configuring the collar so it looks really cool instead of dorky. But you can't really tell here. so...
|~ Trippen Dream Boots, the Happy Collection via ebay ~|
The skirt is from a Katherine Tilton pattern, made a long while ago, Vogue 8837.
And that, my friends, are two out of three of my latest sewing adventures with the new Viking in town. With many more in the wings (I imagine).
I'm even early for Patti and the Visibles at Not Dead Yet Style (yay). Hope to see you gorgeous gals there. And almost late for Catherine's I will wear what I like faux fur party. Simply must get these Trippens to Cherie's Shoe and Tell too.
p.s. faux fur and lining is from Fabric Mart. Although they are out of those fabrics now, they are my favorite online source for great prices, fast service, and interesting fabrics.
Vogue Fabrics is where my Viking Sewing Machine came from and the black knit with silver slivers fabric for my skirt. They have a lousy website, but the store is close by (too close by) and they are unique and friendly.
p.p.s. thanks to Sara for her photo-ing, great as ever.
