Making Jackets from Doublecloth

HollyT | Posted in Feedback on Threads on

I’d like to see an article on sewing with doublecloth.  I see very attractive jackets in the stores, costing $300-1000.  I’d like to make one, and would like suggestions on best construction techniques.  I’d also welcome helps on modifying published patterns for use with doublecloth.

    What is double cloth.

    1. HollyT | | #2

      Double cloth is reversible fabric, most often wool, that is like 2 pieces of fabric attached together with thread, back to back.  Sometimes the 2 fabrics are different colors.

        Oh, O.K. I bought some of that in fleece.  The red and black coat I made is a double fleece.

    Great suggestion, Holly.

    Thanks so much

    There was an article in Threads a while back by Judith Neukam (not sure of spelling) on designer Ralph Rucci's technique of sewing double cloth. Try the Threads index for Ralph Rucci or "double cloth sewing technique". Z

      I saw that article and saw it online, but I would like to see an article that covers all aspects and deals with possible problems (like choosing/adapting a pattern, finishing edges, etc).  The jackets in the stores look great, and I would like my project to be successful too.  The fabric is fairly expensive, so a good result is important.
