Millburn, New Je...
For my husband’s birthday I made him this charcoal “parka” since he was in great need of a really warm coat for this winter. I made the pattern for it by sizing the shoulders off of a coat he owns, and then making it a straight cut down to the hips.
The shell is a charcoal bull denim, and the lining is a striped suiting material that I quilted with a nice plush batting. I think the quilted lining is my favorite part- it gives it such a nice polished look, and it makes the coat so incredibly warm. I put in a double pocket so that he can store his phone in the front compartment, and then warm his hands in the side pockets.
2 yards bull denim, 2 yards lining, 1 1/4 yard batting, zipper
