Also, before anyone starts getting fired up, its faux fur. But it completely feels like a bunny. Now lets hop to it.

For the lining, I used the wrong side of black silk charmeuse that I had already. If you are familiar with silk charmeuse, it is shiny on the right side. I wanted a matte look, so voilà I flipped the fabric. Some people may think its a waste of silk, but it still feels dreamy so no worries.
Working with Faux Fur
- Have a vacuum handy. Vacuum the edges of each piece after cutting.
- Wear a mask to avoid inhaling unwanted particles and fibres. Your lungs will thank you in the future. I wish I followed this when I was younger.
- When cutting out fabric, ONLY cut the backside of the fabric (view photos below). Do not cut the fur itself. This will avoid unnecessary flying fur and maintain the length of the fur on the right side of the garment. Your hem will be beautiful instead of stubby.
