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…
