Trivia[]

  • This was frequently shown over the winter skirt with the knit woolen mittens and red boots; this was the only Limited Edition outfit to do so as the others were full-set outfits.
  • In the advertisement, the coat is marketed as Greta Larson making it out of a Hudson Bay point blanket; this has historical record of being done by pioneers, fursmen, and Indigenous people for hundreds of years.
