Anorak: Sew Your Own Traditional Outer Garment

The anorak is the traditional outer garment worn throughout the far North and Arctic climates. It is designed to be worn over heavier insulating layers to block the wind and shed snow. The anorak design features large sleeves with adjustable wrist gussets, a deep hood, and a large hand-warmer patch pocket on the front. Students will receive one anorak pattern with the class; additional sizes may be purchased. The instructor will contact registered students regarding fabric options and other necessary supplies. Prior sewing experience is helpful.
