I have a gorgeous, soft cashmere/wool blend double cloth fabric. Separating the layers seems doable as the two layers are held by threads (not glue). I would like to make a hip length coat from this fabric, but I want to take advantage of the double cloth and use special seaming techniques for it. What pattern would you suggest for such a fabric? Thanks!

Have you seen the Threads magazine issues with articles on double cloth? Issue #69 page 60-63 and Issue #123 pages 60-65 have some great tips on sewing this type of fabric. Most of the jackets they show do not have buttons, but Issue #69 does have some information about button holes in double cloth.
Good luck with your jacket!
