Hello fellow animal print lovers, I have finally found the fabric and the item I am going to make for Jungle January.
The fabric is a mix of leopard and lion on one side and camel on the other side. So, we have the jungle and the desert coming together nicely. It’s called Kashmir (and is synthetic) but has a nice soft feel to it and is fairly thick. This is the what I’m going to make. It is a trench style coat from the book Chic and Simple Sewing by Christine Haynes.
I am going to alter it, however, and make the sleeves long and not 3/4 length and I’m going to add a cuff. I will also make a coordinating tie belt and add belt loops. I’m excited to get started!

That is an excellent pattern and fabric combo!!!!
Thanks! I hope it works out, the fabric I chose is quite a bit thicker than she shows in the book, but it also drapes nicely and is not too stiff.
Looking forward to seeing it when you finish. I love the material & this pattern should look good on you.
Thanks. I love the fabric as well and hope it works for the coat pattern.

Hi Larisa, I purchased this fabric at FabricLand. I think they are only in Ontario, Canada.
