Coat Sew Along- The interlining

Ah interlining! A thing I knew nothing about until I researched coat making and started this process. I found the Thinsulate interlining I chose to use for this project was super easy to work with. It cut out easily, it sewed easily, it was overall fantastic. Looking at it while I cut it out I thought “Maybe I should double layer this?” I’m glad I didn’t, because once I sewed it into my lining (A post coming next week) it was super warm and a little bulkier than expected (but not too bulky.)
For my interlining and lining, I used pattern B from my pattern, because it seemed a little unnecessary to do all those pleats on all layers. It will still helped hold the shape of the coat without too much bulk and weight. Bulk is apparently the word of the day.
I ordered 3 yards of Thinsulate interlining and only used about 1.5. If I wanted to, I could make a whole other coat (I do not want to.)
Again, I found it for a great price over at Vouge Fabrics.
Next week is a bit of a doozy. Cutting and sewing the lining, then sewing interlining into the lining was a bit of work. See you then!
