Woman's parka

Information

Woman's hooded coat. Made of double fur with double lappet hanging front and back. Part of a complete set of winter garments for a young, unmarried woman. This woman's winter suit may have been made by Bilby's partner Annie for herself, although there does not appear any use on it. At the time, she was an unmarried woman who did not yet have children (as supported by the parka style). The parka style is quite unique, suggestive of a specific woman's style.
