Jalie 2680 – Flocked Denim Coat

IMG_8136

This flocked denim has been in my stash for a few years. I purchased it from Mood Fabrics without knowing what I was going to make with it. I just knew I had to have it and inspiration would follow, as is often the case.

Living on the Central Coast of California I need coats, but I don’t need many warm coats.  I decided this was the year I was going to use this fabric. I pictured something similar to a long denim jacket. I chose the Jalie City Coat pattern. I’ve had the pattern for a few years but had never made it until now. My fabric doesn’t show the details very well so below is a line drawing from the pattern. I plan on making this coat again in a solid red twill from my fabric stash. The pattern does not call for a lining which is what I was looking for with this fabric.

This coat was a joy to sew. I didn’t make any changes to the pattern. I sewed my usual size “S” that I always sew from Jalie patterns. I think this pattern would make a great raincoat when sewn with waterproof fabric.

I purchased the metal buttons at Britex in San Francisco. It’s my favorite place to get buttons. The selection is wonderful.

I love having an assortment of jackets, toppers and coats in my closet. This coat is a great addition to my “collection”.

    • Thank you Kathy. It was fun to sew. Yes, I serged the raw edges prior to sewing the coat. I was going to use bias tape on the seams (Hong Kong Finish) but I feared that would make the seems to thick. I’ll gladly show you the coat.

    • Thank you Becky. Yes, the fabric has some stretch to it. I’ve read that others have had success with fabric that didn’t have any stretch but I’m sure it depends on the type of fabric.

  2. Your coat turned out great! Love the buttons too. I made a coat using that pattern a few years ago. It is a winner, as are all the Jalie patterns I have tried.

  3. Being in the Puget Sound area, I’m with you on not needing warm coats. You have inspired me with this fabulous “cool weather” coat! I’ll have to check out this pattern. Thank you!

  4. Thanks so much for posting this – it’s lovely. I didn’t know about this pattern. Both pattern and fabric would be very suitable for our Western Australian climate.
