    Hi! I was thinking of using a flannel for my lining, since I want just a light weight jacket (for fall, not cold of winter). But I am worried that sleeves will be too “sticky” for little arms to go in and out. Would minky be a better choice? Of, flannel for body and something else (cotton?) for sleeves? Thanks so much!

    I like to use a slippery fabric in sleeves if I am worried about it being too grippy. However, I lined the coat I made in a pima cotton and there was no problem getting it on.

    I used quilting cotton, and they are slippery enough. Flannel might be too grippy for a young child, but if the kid is old enough to pinch his or her shift sleeve as the jacket goes on, it should be fine. I lined a denim jacket in flannel once and never had a problem.

    These sleeves have ease for going over clothing.

    I haven’t lined with flannel but I have used polar fleece for lining the Secret Agent Trench and since this became the child’s favourite jacket I don’t think there was a problem! 🙂

    I’d use a proper slippery lining if I was sewing for me but I’ve made a few of these with flannel lining for the kids and it works fine. We always play the “hold your shirt cuff and don’t let go game” when putting a coat on. (they always let go, apparently that’s the game. Hilarious huh)
