Can you cut the shoulder pad off of a fur coat?
First, check and see how the shoulder pad is sewn in. If it is sewn into the lining itself, it may be better to cut the padding off AROUND the seam and leave the sewn part in place, so you don鈥檛 have to sew that part back together. You don鈥檛 want to risk opening seam that would be visible to the outside of the coat.
Can you cut out the padding from a coat?

How do you sew a coat with a needle?
Take your needle and your thread matching the lining of your coat and thread it through, tying it with a double knot at the bottom so that the thread is doubled. (I gave myself an arm鈥檚 length of thread to work with, and I was able to use that to more than cover sewing both sides.)
