Merchant & Mills' "TN31 Parka" Pattern
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 but achievable if you take it step by step!
Size: This is a multi-size paper pattern in an envelope, including UK sizes 6 – 18. Seam allowances are included in the pattern at 1.5cm, unless otherwise stated.
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 it would look equally good in something more slinky like a Tencel Twill.
For the ribbing neckline, M&M has used rib that stretches by half again, i.e. 10cm piece stretches to 15cm. We carry a few options which can be seen here.
For the lining M&M recommends using Barrier Lining if you are making the oilskin version. Other lining options; Brushed Cotton, Cotton Poplin, or a medium weight slip lining in viscose or acetate.
6 x buttons, approximately 17-22mm.
3.2M of drawstring cord.
