To make this jacket you can use different types of fabrics such as cloth, cotton, wool, satin, etc … preferably use a lightly stiff fabric, then don’t need to use interfacing for the collar.

    I made this (with some minor alterations, I added a patch of coloured fabric in stead of leaving the gap on the back open, and I repeated that same coloured fabric in the decorative 'belt' on the back and also on the cuffs, and the underside of the collar). It is pretty much the cutest coat I have ever made. It was quick, between 2 and 3 hours to do. Thank you for the pattern!
