Double Faced Wool Coat

[email protected] | Posted in Techniques on

I have a beautiful piece of camel / cream double faced wool.    I would like to sew a unlined wrap coat with lapels.    I understand the french seam method for seaming but am at a loss for how to finish the edges for sleeves, neck and lapels.   The coats I have seen in Max-Mara, Neiman Marcus have edges top stitched.  Have scoured the Archives of Threads and cannot find any information on how to proceed with this detail.

    Look up 'felted seam' on youtube. I think you will like this technique.

    If your double-faced wool is of the type in which you can separate the layers, I wrote an article titled "Reversible Techniques for Double Cloth. It is in the Feb/Mar 2006 edition, issue #123 (p.60).

    There is a great tutorial “Inspired by Balenciaga - A Double cloth coat” at EmmaOneSock.com, click tutorial tab. She also carries 98 fabulous solid color choices of silks - crepe, georgette, charmeuse if anyone needs them. Great service for swatches, color match too! FYI - I’m a satisfied customer volunteering this info.
