Model notes: Our model is 5'-6" and a size 10. She is wearing both a size 10 (black velvet) and a size 12 (grey check) for a slightly slouchier fit.
For the jacket body: medium to heavyweight suitings or lightweight coatings with surface texture such as wool melton, wool flannel, crepe and tweed. Velvet, medium-heavy weight cotton, seersucker and linen may also be used. Please note: tightly woven, smooth surfaced suitings like wool gabardine are not recommended since they can be difficult to fuse using an iron.
For the lining: rayon bemberg, charmeuse, crepe de chine, silky cottons like voile
For the pockets: sturdy cotton like shirting, quilting cotton or muslin (1/4 yd / .25m)
