Light to medium weight woven fabrics with a bit of body will work best, such as cotton, linen, chambray, wool crepe, flannel, soft denim, wool, tweed and poplin. Stable knits such as ponte or double knits would also be great for a more advanced version. For the lining, lightweight wovens are best, such as 100% cotton lawn or silk habotai. Bini has made this Blazer dozens of times and in as many fabrics. Don’t hesitate to ask for help.
