The horrendous weather makes me want to buy a new cozy winter coat. I currently have a Merrell Haven but am getting bored of brown. I quite fancy a Didrikson parka but have heard that they have really long arms (I am 5 foot zero) and was wondering whether the Didrikson Kathleen or Alana for teenage girls would be a good option, especially as they are quite a lot cheaper, anyone got one?
Chest under armpit (where sleeves join) 18 1/2" across front. Under sleeve seam to hem 20". Bottom of coat width 20 1/2" across front. Centre back from where hood joins to bottom of hem 31"
Despite the measurements there is a bit of wadding which must make it smaller inside. I sized up rather than bought my true size because on an 'arm stretch' it felt a bit snug with my thickest sweater underneath.
