The pattern I used was McCalls 6656. I made view A and a size S. This has a big red "EASY" on the front of the pattern, even though it looks like it would be complicated - it wasn't. It was super easy! It is unlined, uses button closures instead of a zipper, and the edges are unfinished. Deceptively simple.
The body of the jacket was a black wool coating from Mood fabrics that was kind of medium weight and almost felted in texture - perfect for a pattern with raw edges. I added 2.5" inches of length to the jacket body based on my sister's measurements. I've sewn faux fur before, and used my usual method of tracing the pattern pieces with a sharpie on the back of the fur and cutting with an X-acto knife to minimize the fur shedding.
The jacket sewed up very quickly and I thought the instructions were adequate. I ended up topstitching the front to help keep the fur facing in place and hand sewed the rest of it in place along the inner seam allowances. Following the advice of another patter reviewer, I did not use the original button placement markings - they seemed much too high. I just tried it on, made a note of how it draped and where it would be comfortable and marked it accordingly. I'd say my top button is at least 3" lower than the suggested placement. Other than that, it was a quick, fun sew - 4 hours start to finish including a bit of hand sewing!
The fur is very soft when the jacket is closed and it's against the face - not at all scratchy or itchy, in my opinion.
