Nomad Coat

I made this coat a couple of years ago. It was one of my first reviews for PatternReview. The pattern envelope lists light weight melton as a recommended fabric. And I agree that it should be fine. I wouldn't go with a heavy melton. Because the jacket is dolman sleeved, you need a soft draping fabric, and I think a medium or heavy weight melton would be too stiff; there would be too much bulk under the arms for the jacket to be flattering.

Neefer, thanks for posting on the Nomad Coat. I'll keep it in mind for another piece, as I love the look of the pattern.
