Hi, six years later I have discovered this pattern and am sewing it for two (maybe three!) granddaughters. I just finished the muslin for this pattern and will starting the real thing next. Just a tip on cutting the fabric: I found that using the tips of sharp scissors with the faux suede backed with a faux shearling left finished edges too jagged. I was not too keen on spending $45+ on a "fur knife" either. I bought a pack of old-timey injector razor blades (cutting edge on one side only) for $2 at the drug store, and they seem to cut just as effectively as the fur knife recommended.

Eleda, the fabric is from Ebay (ships from Germany!): http://cgi.ebay.de/Hilco-Lederimitat-Jacken-Fell-Stoff-creme-gold-0-50m-/380264817450?pt=DE_Haus_Garten_Hobby_Basteln_Stoffe&hash=item58898ca32a or http://cgi.ebay.de/Stoff-Lederimitat-Fell-Pelz-Malasia-Ottobre-pink-HILCO-/380165945214?pt=DE_Haus_Garten_Hobby_Basteln_Stoffe&hash=item5883a7f77e
