A coat requires about 3 yards (12 quarters) of coating weight wool, or worsted. The lining needs about the same (12 quarters) linen, silk, worsted or flannel. A piece (1/4 yard) of linen buckram is required along the front. Some woolens have a grain that will require more yardage to keep the grain running in the correct direction. All yardages are only suggestions & are at your discretion.
Notions required include a spool of 35/2 linen thread or 50/3 linen thread to match & 1 spool silk buttonhole twist or quilters thread for buttonholes. If you use buttons just on the front & skirts 12, 7/8″ or 1″ buttons is all you need. If you decide to add buttons to the cuffs add another 6, 7/8″ to 1″ buttons. If you decide to add buttons to the pockets as well add another 6, 7/8″ to 1″ buttons. And finally, you can add a second, 7/8″ to 1″ button to each skirt so that the coat can have anywhere from 12 to 26, 7/8 to 1″ buttons.
