I know I’m a bit late to the party, but I am really digging these olive green parkas that I am seeing everywhere! I know all the cool kids have been wearing them for ages, but I’ve only just decided I want one. And not just want one, I want to MAKE one
I’ve decided the pattern will be the Sewaholic Minoru Jacket. I’ll be honest, I haven’t really loved this pattern before but after seeing so many Parkas I suddenly had a brainwave, this can totally be made into a Parka! It’s just a matter of accessories and fabric choices!
I’ve gone for this fabric for the main coat from Cloth mill. They have a fabulous selection of outerwear fabric atm, if you’re thinking of making a jacket they are definitely worth checking out! I searched for ages for a check, fuzzy lining, but came up empty. In the end I thought this black and white zig zag pattern would be really fun, if a little sore on the eyes! I got it in brushed cotton so it’ll hopefully be snuggly and warm when I wear the jacket
And what parka would be complete without some faux Fur? I got mine from Minerva craft.
So, now I only have to wait for the fabric to arrive and contemplate the fact that I’m making a jacket. A full on winter jacket….. just a little more than I’ve attempted before!
