Anorak: Sew Your Own Traditional Outer Garment

Course Overview

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. This anorak design may be made from a variety of fabrics and features large sleeves with adjustable wrist gussets, a deep hood, and a large hand-warmer patch pocket on the front. Trim may be added if desired. The instructor will contact registered students regarding fabric options and other necessary supplies. Prior sewing experience is necessary to complete the anorak in the time allowed.
