I used a cotton fabric for this jacket. I didn’t change much of the original pattern, I only shortened the sleeves and used eye and hook fastening instead of the zipper. I made the jacket without pockets and lined it with a synthetic fabric (that rustles, urgh!).
I used red piping to brighten the olive green of the fabric. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the lining fabric in a similar color.
