New York, New Yo...
I made a size 12 with tweed/boucle fabric ($3/yard) and lined it with light fleece that I got from denver fabrics for $2/yard.
I used about 1 1/2 yards of each fabric.
1. I would use iron on interfacing or iron on fleece to stop the fabric from unraveling
2. Make the peplum longer and the waist smaller so the peplum is exaggerated
3. Make the neck hole smaller since the collar was too open (at least for me personally)
It’s not perfect and the inside is a mess but it’s about the 15th thing i’ve ever sewed and my first successful jacket that I can wear.
