Since it falls right before holiday festivities, Danny's birthday usually sneaks up on me. This year I did a little planning and made him something that would also be pretty useful considering the ridiculously cold temperatures lately.He has always wanted an intensely warm coat, so I made him this one after peaking at a few stylish parkas from Urban Outfitters.
The shell is a charcoal bull denim, and the lining is a gray striped suiting material that I quilted with a plush cotton batting.
Although I wanted it to be a surprise gift, I also wanted to make sure it fit properly, so Danny was well aware of what he would be receiving.
And yes, we took the pictures in the back of a moving truck because we are currently packing up all of our earthly possessions and moving them to a new little place that we will be living in sometime around December 29th. It will definitely be a holiday to remember.
