I want a coat, the Talea coat to be exact. I’m going to a fabric outlet today so nows the best time to figure this thing out. I want my coat to be WARM. During the winter I must layer at least 5 XXL mens hoodies in order to have an enjoyable time in the great outdoors. Bummer, but I’m totally intolerable to cold. But aside from being warm, I don’t want the coat to be huge and puffy; I like relatively clean lines. Also I want to be able to choose a lining fabric that has a print I absolutely love, incorporating grey, gold, and blue colors. I could always layer an extra sweater, and warm accesories too so I can sacrafice a tiny ammount of warmth for that amazing print I know I’ll find. Should I layer fabrics in the coat for warmth? I looked around other’s Talea Projects, and found that one person used fleece for lining. I don’t think that will give me my print though. Another used fleece as a layer between lining and wool, which will allow for a print on top, but will it produce puffiness? And another used satin backed flannel… never even heard of this stuff, but flannel I know produces some warmth. What do you think? I haven’t had tons of experience with different fabrics, this is my first coat, and my first woolen project as well. I usually make dresses, and usually in cotton. I usually practice new fabrics on pajamas. Maybe there is a warm and versitile fabric out there that someone around here knows of! Also taken into consideration, is this coat better used for only relatively cold weather and not the really freezing? Also can anyone give me a suggestion as to what kind of needle to use on my machine? I don’t want to run into some of the problems that the others have. Help me warm up to this pattern! It’s July and I’m getting a head start on the cold here in Texas. Autum is about a week long so….
Keep an eye out at thrift stores, ebay, and garage sales. Many people sell the machine…
