Marfy Jacket 3350 – fabrics

While searching my fabric stash for a fabric I could use to make the jacket based on  Marfy 3350 pattern I came across these two ones.

The blue/white fabric is loose woven wool bland.

This brownish one is linen bland. It is more stiff than the above one.

Looking at the qualities and properties of both fabrics I think I will go for the blue/white one. It is softer and looking at my wardrobe – I have much more combination possibilities.

But everything depends on the amount of fabric – I have to check if I have enough of this blue/white fabric to make it the way I want.

The brownish one will become either a dress or jacket/skirt combination.

Meanwhile the book Couture Sewing: The Couture Skirt: more sewing secrets from a Chanel collector by Claire Shaeffer has arrived.  It went so fast!

Something is telling me that this will be my next project … soon.

Which one would you advice?

    Both fabrics are great. I wonder if the striped effect would show to greater advantage with this particular pattern. The blue and white is lovely but the lines of the pattern may get lost behind it.
