To get the most economical use of the fabric, you may need to try different layouts, then draw around the pattern pieces using a soft pencil or fine marking pen, making certain that you accurately transfer the joint locating marks.
Double check that you have marked the correct number of pieces and where necessary, that they have been reversed. Remember, the mohair is expensive – measure twice - check twice – cut once!
Now check again that the fabric is lying in the right direction – one half of the chest running upwards and one half running downwards – is not a good idea. Even the best or most experienced of us make this mistake occasionally!
Using small sharp pointed scissors cut out the pieces. It is advisable to remove the fur on the seam allowance of all the pieces. This helps to aviod trapping fur in the seams when you are sewing up. It is a tedious part of the preparation but it will give a better finish to your seams.
