I wanted a winter coat for going to the park and walking the dog. I started with the Ottobre Design Magazine 05/2013 fall favourite fishtail parka. I didn’t cut out the fish tail il the back, instead I curved the back. I quilted the inner using a thick cotton interlining, layered between flannel and satin lining. I wanted this to look different to my daughters coat so I added extra details at the cuff and the breast pocket. The large pockets I lined which helped give body and strengthen.

I love this coat, it took me about 20 hours to make.

This is a great pattern which is easy to sew.
