mylittleelephant, I know there are alot of different fleece weight jackets sold in stores, but I bought my fleece at Joanns and it is just the regular, quite medium weight, fleece and not lining fleece! :) My tweed coating was not as heavy weight as some wool coating, so paired with this kind of fleece, the result is not so heavy but gives the coat some body. The slip stitch at the hem, however, is a little tricky.

So so cute! Just curious, I don't know much about fleece but which kind of weight of it have you used? Is it sold as "lining fleece"? Sounds very warm and tempting to try it out......

WOW! the pockets and the knit collar make this a really spectacular coat. You are very brave to try welt pockets and I love that they are angled. Nice!
