Winter Coat Fabrics Tips
The best fabrics for winter coats are medium to heavy-weight fabrics, that still have some drape. This gives the coat structure and warmth. Great fabric choices for winter coat sewing are wool, velvet, tweed and cashmere.
Checking out the upholstery fabric section of your favourite fabric store can turn up some great options (but just keep fabric drape in mind). These fabrics often have a lovely texture that can hide any imperfections in your sewing.
While plaid can make a gorgeous coat, only choose a large plaid if you’re willing to take the time to match up your print carefully.
Whether you’re a seasoned seamstress or just getting started, there’s a women’s coat sewing pattern on this list for you. Remember to take your time, have fun, and don’t be afraid to make adjustments to make your coat truly your own.
