    I wish I could go! I already bought the pattern and the fabric, just need time to start working on it! I am thinking of adding thinsulate between the fabric and the lining to make it warmer. I am in Canada… would that work?

      I love adding a layer of flannel and then a quilted cotton liner for weight and warmth. Use 100% wool if you can for a really warm effect. Post photos if you make your coat.
