Jalie Parka Pattern Giveaway!

Preparing to make my husband's hunting outfit, I ordered a couple of patterns and notions from Seattle Fabrics. It's always exciting (maybe addictive?) to get such packages but I have to admit my heart sank when I discovered two copies of the Jalie Parka pattern. I don't how it happened, but I never noticed there were 2 in my shopping cart. If I was going to buy another pattern, there are plenty of Jalie patterns I have my eye on!

If I returned the pattern, I figured I'd get very little money back after shipping costs and the restocking fee. So my husband had the great idea to do a giveaway. Maybe you will benefit from my silly mistake!

Leave a comment if this is something you would make. My version of this parka is here. Here are the pattern specifications.

I'll do a drawing next Sunday, November 13 and am happy to ship internationally.

  1. Joy, this is totally something I would make. I tried a parka many years ago but didn't have a nice pattern like Jalie. The Jalies look so RTW that I'd love to try again from a better starting point.

    Thanks for offering the giveaway!

  2. This is one of the (ahem, many) Jalie patterns I'vebern eyeing, and I was so impressed with the one you made for your hubs. Now that I'm looking outside at snow, I know I'd get a lot of use out of it. Great giveaway!

  3. I'd love to have a go and making this. Given that I live in one of the wettest places in the world, it would definitely come in handy.

  7. I'm jumping into coat making this fall/winter and would love to win the parka pattern. It's been one of those patterns I have bookmarked and look at periodically but haven't taken the plunge and ordered yet!
