Fall is here in the Pacific Northwest in full force (and the changing colors of the leaves look oh so pretty through the rain) and cool weather has come with it. It’s the time to start sewing for the even colder weather to come – to start planning winter jackets and coats. In this month’s Seamwork Magazine, I have an article on choosing fabric for sewing winter coats and jackets. There’s a lot to know about wool (wonderous material that it is), and a surprising number of other fabrics to consider.
Have you sewn a winter coat or are you planning on sewing a winter coat? What fabric will/did you use?
