I’m getting ready to make my first coat and I’m nervous! I have oodles of a lovely purple lightweight wool blend fabric and have gotten a great vintage pattern for a princess seamed fall/spring coat. However, I’m not sure about what to use to line the coat.
My worry: If I just use a regular coat lining, the fabric weight won’t be substantial enough for the tailoring of the pattern. Maybe a thicker, and slightly warmer lining fabric would work? It is a fall coat, but I don’t want to have to layer too many sweaters underneath to stay warm and the pattern is fitted. I thought that maybe a thin quilted fabric would be good.
I really don’t know what I’m doing when it comes to lining a coat, and I’d like it to turn out really well, but not get too expensive.
Can anyone give me any suggestions?
