Any thoughts on the Sunday Brunch Jacket from flannel?

    Would it work to make the Sunday Brunch Jacket from flannel? I just love the look of the herringbone flannels, and am wondering if it’d work. Drape, gathering, etc. Thoughts?

    My only hesitation would be how the flannel itself would wear. I think it would sew up fine into the jacket, but I have yet to find a flannel that doesn’t fade and pill horribly after a few washes. I’d subject a sizable swatch to some rough treatment first.

    Also, you’d probably want to use a lighter cotton for the bias bindings – flannel on flannel would get really bulky.

    The only one I’ve made was flannel and i thought it worked very well. The Woollies flannels are lovely, I made a Music Class shirt in a herringbone flannel from them and it washed and wore perfectly. I say go for it. It will be more a heavy shirt weight than a jacket but the fabric will behave just fine.
    You’ll be able to spot my flannel Sunday Brunch jacket in my All The Skirts post!
