Notes I have recently ordered this fantastic heavyweight fabric . It is a two faced fabric: grey bouclé wool and at the back it has a grass green polyester fabric looking a bit like neoprene.
So I am not going to line this jacket! Jeeee!!!
I know... I should have put the green side out, but I am afraid that the wool leaves plenty of white fiber on me while wearing it. I think i don't have the choice here
Update: wonderful fabric easy to sew easy to cut. My only concern is that it is very difficult to finish edges
Update : I have not finished the jacket and I have already broke 4 needles ! They were universal bernina needles,
Done! I am overall satisfied. The pattern was perfect, I made zero alterations! Unfortunately my zipper puckers, it might be the zipper quality. I chose plastic zipper to not to damage the bouclé fabric.

    Yes Maria, I wore it but I lost weight now I have to redo everything I have made from lekala. I order smaller size pattern unpick seems and recut all fabric pieces... very annoying. Perhaps when I redo this one I will Change the zipper to buttons or to different closure

    This is a lovely jacket, I hope that you got to wear it in the end?
    Very annoying with things like a puckering zipper!!

    Has become a very nice coat. As far as the needles are concerned I use topstitching for my coat and there is not a broken one yet.
