Man! I can’t believe I’m just posting about this lovely coat! I’ve been sitting on it since around August when I received the pattern. I immediately knew I wanted to sew it with velveteen and a cotton lining. I ordered the fabric, and let it sit there. Partly because sewing outerwear scares me, secondly because the fabric was a little pricey. I FINALLY cut into it around the middle of November and I’m so happy I did- it turned out exactly how I had planned!
I did not inner-line this coat. Mine is only sewn with an outer velveteen and an inner cotton. It is not super warm, but it definitely does it’s job here in Texas.
Do you enjoy sewing outerwear? I thoroughly enjoyed sewing this jacket and hope to sew some more outerwear in the future!
