Does anyone have any tutorial or pattern for making something like this jacket she's wearing in the last picture:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=356910.0
(here's the image link:http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg211/a-lle-gr-a/LostAtelier/imi-skirts-Two.jpg)
but  more blazer like?

I don't need a full pattern just a base I can work from..

And would I need a stiff fabric or would jersey blend do?

thanks in advance!

I think I now how, but even though I'm pretty good at pattern-making, my sewing machine skills are novice level..
Anyone?

What about either one of these:  http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m5859-products-10071.php?page_id=115 or http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m5936-products-10418.php?page_id=115 cropped to be short?  They have that sweet look, but they're definitely blazers.  Another thing to do would be to look at blouses.  And the fabric would depend on how you want it to drape.  If you want it to have the structure of a blazer, you should use a stiffer fabric, or interfacing.  Even something like poplin would work.  That's what I would use, to get something light that still had a bit of crisp to it.
