Simplicity 4032 and Faux Fur - Item 8 Planning

The next item I'm planning on making for the Sew Along is Item 8 - a Faux Fur Vest.  I'm going to use Simplicity 4032 (View E) with some modifications.

I'm going to line the vest and won't be attaching the ruffle (would be a bit tricky with fur hey?). Lincraft (Australian shop) were having a half price fabric sale, so I was able to pick up this lovely soft, mink like fur at half price.

 I also bought the lining at Lincraft and it is a toffee brown colour.  I will make some notes in the next post about my progress. So far my advice is - get out your vacuums girls! That fur sure does go a long way!
