Choice of fabric
A medium-weight to light-weight fabric in cotton, linen or wool is recommended, but it also works well with heavy-weight woven fabrics or knits. Remember to use stretch seams if you are working with jersey. Beginners will benefit from a firm woven fabric, as it is easier to work with. The coat is unlined and easy to sew.
