Wolverine skirt & Land Otter cuffs

Getting very close 😲! I finished sewing the wrist with otter calfskin otter in that order.

I had to crimp the squirrels to fit the width of the cuffs/wrists. It fits the length of my arms. If my daughters grows with longer arms than me, it can be adjusted.

Quarter inch for width of Wolverine for the skirt. I think I succeeded with dark and light color fur for the Wolverine skirt.

Skirt is squirrel calfskin otter and Wolverine.

I have broken nearly a dozen #10 glove needles;

Most ended up in the trash but these are small collections I kept.

The next step is the ruff. I have been debating zipper or no zipper for the neck area; initially I wanted as traditional as possible and then I thought of comfortable wear. 🤔

I am going to sew as much as I can this weekend with rocky road ice cream breaks 😆. Enjoy coast like snow storm and be safe ❄️. Piurci!
