I have been thinking about making a nice warm winter coat for some time. Since I’m not very experienced (been sewing for a year and made about 6 easy to medium projects), I am a bit hesitant to start.
1. I feel unsure about working with three layers. How difficult is this?
I was thinking to make a wool (or wool blend) outer layer (haven’t bought it yet). And I already have some funny stretch satin-like material for the lining (originally intended for a dress). To make it warmer and windresistant, I would like to add a layer in between. I am thinking of using “molton” for the in-between layer (already bought). (Sorry, I can’t find the English translation of molton, a lot of people use it to protect mattresses or as an extra layer under a table cloth. It is soft and white).
2. I am wondering if I should make it a size bigger than I would usually pick for clothing, because it is going to be thicker with the extra layer.
3. I have a pattern in mind: Burda 7732 and then the A variant. It doesn’t seem too complicated (no complicated sleeves or small details).
I would be interested in your experiences in this kind of projects! Or if you have any recommendations, I would be very happy…
Keep an eye out at thrift stores, ebay, and garage sales. Many people sell the machine…
Some patterns will only be in German and good thing that Google Translate is around or …
