Description

I needed a winter coat. I haven’t had one in years, because I don’t like looking like a marshmallow. It’s my first “real” winter coat in a long time. : ) Hope you like it.

    I was actually just jealous of your marshmallow coat… I’m sure all the cool kids had those apart from me!… I wasnt a particularly kool child :-( Yep… my shellsuit was pretty amazing… I wore it to college once as a joke… I got some interested looks! hahaha… probably because it was way too small as I owned it when I was 10.

    What like the staypuff marshmallow man ones?? Shame on you melonhead I thought you had more style! Still you can be forgiven… everyone makes fashion faux pas’… as a child of the 80’s I may have owned a shellsuit… oh happy days.. It was bright purple with green and red on it! Sexy!

      Yeah It’s pretty easy. It’s just like a regular coat, but you make the front part wider so it will over-lap. :)
