Tiger sweatshirt

Even though I'm usually more of a leopard fan I've been quietly obsessing about tiger prints for months now so when I saw this thin, velvety fake tiger fur at a local shop I was delighted! It was the perfect fabric for another idée fixe of mine, a slightly bulky raglan sweatshirt -go figure^^
I found the pattern in an old Female magazine, it was sized for knits but after measuring the pieces I saw it would be roomy enough for non stretchable fabric so I tried a size L and it worked great! Since I didn't want the hood part I simply finished the neckline with some mustard bias tape from my stash.

I'm so happy with how this project turned out, not only was it quick and easy but the final product looks exactly as I wanted it to! It's also very comfortable and I've worn it a lot :) By the way, to avoid damaging the fake fur I turn the garment inside out and put it in a lingerie bag before washing it in the machine.
