But with a lot of different options available at our fingertips, thanks to so many great fabric retailers online stocking oodles of fabric, how the heck do you go about selecting a fabric that works for your pattern, your lifestyle, your climate, and know if it’s going to give you good results?
This video excerpt from my upcoming new course Create Your First Coat, launching later this year, explains how to determine if your coat fabric will be warm enough by using a simple test (and you get to see me look silly in the process). There’s also some things to consider if you’re working with a fabric like cashmere, which I cover towards the end of the clip.
Pretty nifty, right?
If you’re interested in learning more, you can watch the entire lesson on selecting coat fabrics over at my new course site, Wardrobe Academy.
