The Lady's Jumper pattern is knitted to a tension of 4.5 stitches to the inch (approx. 18 st. to 10 cm.) over stocking stitch with size 4 needles (6mm.). I imagine, from the cover photo, that that is a reasonable tension for the yarn - not too loose, not too tight. So that would make Totem somewhere around an Aran or Chunky yarn.
The House Coatee is knitted to a much looser tension - 3 st. to the inch on size E needles (whatever they are). I'm not sure how well the House Coatee would wear, in practice. It's knitted loosely but is intended to be close fitting - I think it would pull against the single button and stretch out of shape. In fact, it already seems to be doing that a little bit in the photo. Maybe if you were very slim, and didn't move and didn't breathe, that could work.
