I bought this coat a couple of years ago and I quite like it.



It's relatively cosy and I like the fur around the hood.  The only problem is the pockets - on a cold day, you expect that putting your hands in the pockets will mean relief from the cold.  However, while the jacket is quilted, the pockets are not.  They are just thick cotton drill.

However, I was at Lincraft recently (buying yarn Smiley) and I spotted a $2.67 remnant of polar fleece.  An impulse buy and a few minutes at the sewing machine later, I produced these:



Here it is in situ:



It's a very simple pocket liner and I'm sure it's been done before but I'm expecting it will make all the difference.  Comments or criticisms welcome.

Boldly going where others have probably been.

Good idea! I love the touch of red that the coat has now.
