I'm making this in a brown water repellent shell that I purchased at the same time as some softshell. I didn't know what it would be like. It is 2-layer, one an impervious membrane, so it has to be lined. I chose a pink, cream and brown stripe cotton for the lining.
This fabric is really hard to work with and can't be ironed. I got burned out after only a short time. =/
