The TN31 Parka Paper Sewing Pattern by Merchant & Mills

$20.00

Shipping to United States: $4.50

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.

Skill level: Experienced

Suitable fabrics:

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.

For the lining we would recommend using: 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.
