TN31 Parka Pattern

Merchant & Mills

$ 21.50

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, Waxed Canvas or 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 it will look equally good in something more slinky like a Tencel Twill.
For the ribbing neckline, use rib that stretches by half again, i.e. 10cm piece stretches to 15cm. The Merchant & Mills plain rib works well. You can also use their French striped ribbing for the neckline.
Lining options: Brushed Cotton, Cotton Poplin, or a medium weight slip lining in viscose or acetate.
Extra Notions: 6 x buttons, approximately 17-22mm. 4 yards of drawstring cord. Matching Thread.
  • This is a multi-size paper pattern in an envelope, including sizes 6 – 18. Seam allowances are 1.5cm and are included in the pattern.
