You Felt Like I DidPosted: March 6, 2017 | |
The fabric that I have chosen to use for my first jacket is a very thin, no-stretch cotton which is similar to the sports of fabrics used for parka’s and anorak’s. I chose this fabric because of the tightness of the weave and because it seems like a waterproof fabric even though it hasn’t been coated.
In order to make my fabric more suitable for my jacket, I’ve used Fusible Felt as a way to pad the fabric into a thicker, sturdier weight. Its also had the effect of maxing the wax fabric softer. After waxing the fabric becomes stiff and the Fusible Felt gives it much more freedom of movement.
