Living in the North means bundling up when venturing outdoors in the winter. Saila stays warm in her traditionally designed parka, worn with purple snowpants and winter boots. In her journal pages Saila describes the challenges of living in a place with permafrost where the ground is "permanently frozen", all year round.
The parka has a full quilted lining, luxurious faux fur around the collar and cuffs, a rugged zipper and is made of the same fabric as real parkas used in Canada's North. There are four lines of decorative stitching on the front seams and real pockets. Three lines of grosgrain are individually stitched around the bottom edge and the cuffs. The bottom edge of the parka curves down in the front and back, just like real parkas made by Inuit in Canada's Arctic.
In keeping with traditional design, the sleeves are extra long to cover the hands.
The snowpants are lined and padded and have a snap at the front and elastic at the waist to aid in fitting. The snow pants are designed to fit over leggings or thin pants.
The boots have velcro at the back for easy on-off. The elastic laces at the front can be adjusted so that the boot will easily fit the foot of any 18 inch doll. Note the detailed design of the tabs on the boots.
This is truly an exquisite item--easy to play with, but eagerly sought by collectors for its exceptional detail.
