Recommended Fabrics: Gabardine, plush fabrics, tartan flannel, wool or waterproof textiles. The inside lining should be reinforced when using a thin fabric, it can puffed using a stuffing or wadding for extra layer and warmth.
We recommend the thin leatherette on the outside and a plush velvet on the inside for comfort, or soft satin for a lighter result.
