Didn't necessarily save money. I think this added up to around $65 Canadian. I noticed a Wetskins with more pockets for sale at Winners for $29. The quality of my fabric may be better and it looks different than what's being sold right now. And I suppose I know this wasn't made in a sweatshop -- although don't know the fabric's origin.

That's a great jacket and making it yourself would have saved you heaps! I'm also so glad someone reviewed this pattern, as I like it myself and am currently looking for fabric to make myself a parka. I won't be using Gortex but i appreciate your comments on the pattern.

You did a great job with your jacket. You will have saved yourself a lot of money even although the Goretex would have been expensive

Snap fix was GREAT idea. Info on Gortex gives me confidence to try some myself. Thanks.

I know all too well the problem of wearing a jacket for decades :-). So since this is Goretex and you could probably be buried in it, I'm glad that you like it so well. It looks really professional, and obviously it's standing up to the weather fine, perfect balance of form and function. But yes, in Europe 'parka' just means water or wind-proof shell..

How fortuitous that you had that snowstorm so you could try out your jacket! Love your color combo and it looks very professional.

Great job Shelley! I like the quick fix you made by adding snaps to the flap. You should feel proud to have faced this challenge; the resulting jacket is very RTW. -Lisa

Looks like you purchased this in a sporting goods store and I mean that in a positive way. Beautiful work!
