Coat Fabric is Here!
I went with the codura faced ultrex for the shell (waterproof, windproof, breatheable -- it's the dark blue with the white- with the white being the waterproof bit) from seattle fabrics and a bright blue rayon bemberg (static free and breathable) from vogue fabrics for my lining.
I also got waterproof zippers -- I have five - one for the center front, and two each for the pockets and pit-zips.
This amalgamation is rounded out by the thinsulate I got last year for my previous attempt at a winter coat.
I'm a lot happier with this pattern, more sure of my ability to work with my materials and have a better plan for how to accomplish everything. Wish me luck! My goal it to finish by the 1st of October.
