Light to mid-weight cottons, linens, chambrays, and blends work well for this jacket. Since the fabric will be doubled and quilted to a batting avoid anything too heavy, as the jacket may become excessively stiff. Extra fabric may be needed to match plaids, stripes, or one-way design prints.
5 yds of ½” wide double fold bias binding (or ½ yd extra fabric to make your own)
