Hello lovely people!
I am making the Jalie City Coat for the first time, with Polartec windbloc fabric.
Windbloc®
Polartec® Style # 9637, color 99681
Face: Woven
Back: Fleece
Width: 60"
Weight/sq yard: 8.2 oz

I haven't actually touched the fabric yet but am assured by the lovely people at the Rainshed that it will be suitable.

I plan to close it with a zip rather than with buttons as per the pattern.

Question: When sewing with this kind of fabric, does one need the facings? I would go and snoop shop but tomorrow is a holiday here, and I thought who better to ask than you guys.

Thanks for any advice!

I made this coat with goretex soft-shell. I elimated the facings...no need for them! I simply installed the zip and topstitched it.

Thanks hpsauce, that's exactly what I hoped someone would say!! Did you still do the yoke as a double layer or just as one?
