I love that Hilary Duff pattern! I might have to go pick it up.
As for fabric I guess it would depend on how crisp you want the lines.

I found a totally gorgeous soft wool suiting at JoAnn's that would give that jacket a bit more drape that I think I want to go double check now...

Oh yeah, don't forget to post pictures after you've decided. I think it'll be cute either way.

I'm totally getting that Duff pattern myself.  You may also want to check out the vintage patterns on Ebay.  That jacket is very 60's.  They're listed until collectibles.

Just wanted to let everyone know -- I bought the hillary duff pattern today --> $0.99 at hancocks!!! I also got some cheap fabric from wal-mart to do a prototype.  Thanks again for the pattern suggestions, everyone! SmileySmileySmiley

I vote for some kind of cotton. I would say twill too or maybe even a thinner corduroy.

I can't wait to see how it goes for you. I LOVE that Hilary pattern and wish I would have bought it during the sale. But I WILL get it. It's awesome.

Let us all know how the pattern goes and show us pics for sure!!

...i finished off the rest of the ice cream so i expect to be having another butt in the morning!!

Hmm...right now I'm working on McCall's 5480. There are two views that are waist-length jackets (with different sleeves), and I'm doing the long coat. I've always had pretty good luck with McCall's patterns in terms of being easy to understand.

I'm not easily distrac---hey, something shiny!
