What fabric should I use?
The pattern is designed for woven fabric types. You may choose medium-weight fabrics that have some structure but not too much. If you are unsure about fabric selection, fabrics like linen, cotton twill, or suiting wool weave work well for this vest.

For this style, if the vest is made of medium-weight fabric, both the lining and the shell should be sewn using the same fabric. If you intend to use a slightly thicker fabric such as denim, velvet, or corduroy, it may be beneficial to use a lightweight to medium-weight material for the lining.
