Lined Hoodie Parka with fabrics from my stash!
A review of Hoodie Parka Coat
Finally done! I started this TAL Hoodie Parka during fall, as part of my “fabric roulette” (where I ask my sewing buddies for a number, and force myself to use the corresponding number from my stash on Trello). I love it, but struggled a bit with the self drafted lining.
All fabrics are from my stash: the gorgeous printed cotton canvas (Pompelmona from Borås cotton studio) were once draperies in my childhood home (in the seventies), the lining was a beast to handle and has been in my stash for a few years. I didn’t have enough of the lining fabric so I used a small scrap from my wedding dress for the inside yoke. I also added ribbed cuffs to the lining sleeves, not seen in the photos (it was actually the cuff fabric that was drawn in the fabric roulette!).
I added an embroidery (“FEMINIST”) to the back. I am really chuffed!
