Quilted Parka Coat

Warwick, United ...






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.

Material Notes

Denim, interlining and lining is all from Birmingham Rag Market UK.

      Thank you, I wasn’t sure about the red buttons. I nearly unpicked them and put some white or navy ones on them.

      The fabric is from the Birmingham Rag market. The denim was £3 a meter and the spotty lining £1 a meter. I love walking round there and the stall
      holders are lovely.

      Sorry if I deleted replies.

      The market is on a Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

      I like going on a Tuesday there is a great zip stall (10p a zip) in the inside market, opposite side of the road to cafe soya.

      You will have to let me know what day the markets on. Mum and me are thinking of going to Birmingham next year for a weekend. I was born there but we left when I was 6 months x
