Merchant and Mills

£14.50

In stock

TN31 is a relaxed and versatile interpretation of the classic fishtail parka. Lined or unlined it can work for all seasons. It has side pockets, front welt pockets, a back vent and optional drawstring waist. All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless otherwise stated. Neck has 1cm seam allowance.
Suitable fabrics:
For our combination suggestions click here.
Dry Oilskin, Oilskin (lined version only), Tweed, Woollens, Cotton Drill, Cotton Canvas, Waterproofed Cottons and Linens. Using something like oilskin will ensure it keeps it structural shape, but we think it would look equally good in something more slinky like a Tencel Twill.
For the ribbing neckline, we have used rib that stretches by half again, i.e. 10cm piece stretches to 15cm. We used our plain rib which you can see by clicking onto alternative fabrics. You can also use a piece of our French striped ribbing for the neckline.
For the lining we would recommend using our Barrier Lining if you are making the oilskin version. We have it in Black or Tan. Other lining options; Brushed Cotton, Cotton Poplin, or a medium weight slip lining in viscose or acetate.
Extra Notions:
6 x buttons, approximately 17-22mm. We have had 4 Corozo buttons dyed specially to match our oilskin colours. You can see these here.
3.2M of drawstring cord. We have used this one, which comes in 5 colours.
Matching Thread
