What a Fashionable Child wore in the 70's

My mother made this for me and it had to be one of my most prized possessions. How cool was I?
An abstract Giraffe Print corduroy with a front zip and pocket, and black fringe.... but the real reason I loved it?  It is lined in a mohair fabric that I have only seen used in stuffed bears.  I had to hurry up and donate it for fear I would hide it back in the closet again, can't believe I didn't get better pics.

What a great 1970's statement. I bet a picker for a production studio would love to have this in the wardrobe.

The trim is so groovy! I wish I had some of the things my mom made for me. A hot pink culotte-and-vest set from the 2nd grade stands out in my mind in particular.
