My newest parka




I finally got the fur on my latest sewing project and took a few minutes to take some self portraits. (I should have changed out of my PJ pants I guess)  The best part of my new coat? The inside pockets!




And the funky lining.

Woah you MADE that? I'm impressed! I'd love to own a parka but it's far too mild here in Holland. :/

Love the lining!

WHOA! Wicked, I love the colour and the lining!! Did they ever get new stuff at the co-op...or did you bring that up from down south?

Awesome!!! Luv the colours...looks so good!! :)

I might be ordering one from you... I have a GORGEOUS one that a really good friend in Pang made me...BUT i've lost a bit of weight.. and it's already a bit too roomy...

Jen, they have NOTHING new at the Coop, not sure who was doing the ordering this year but they really dropped the ball. I picked this up last time I was out and the commander came from IQ.

Tara and Sarah... I am not confident enough to make one based on measurements alone. I've tried it once for a kids sized one and it worked out but I would just die if it didn't fit in the end. I could make you one Tara once I get there and can fit you.

As always, let me know if you'd like me to mail up some material or bias tape.
