Solara makes up best in a medium to full bodied fabric. Something with a bit of structure such as linen, cotton poplin, lightweight wool suiting or even a silk organza work well to accentuate it's shape.
If wanting to create a jacket or coat using the Solara pattern, we recommend moving up 1-2 sizes to allow for ease of movement when wearing other garments underneath.
