As a participant who succeeded in finishing the SWAP challenge, I received a pattern of my choice from Timmel Fabrics. This is what I chose.
What, in your opinion would be the best type of fabrics for a blouse? Something light to be sure. Also, I was thinking of making it bigger by a size and perhaps turning it into a spring jacket. Whaddya think?

I like the idea of it as a jacket - can't think of anything beyond linen which may crease too much where the belt is.

A linen poly blend could be a nice weight for a light jacket and won't crease as much.
You could do a lot with that pattern -- light cotton or medium weight silk for the short sleeved in summer and denim or light wool crepe for the fall.

Mary I agree with Dorothy on a lightweight poly linen.
For winter that as a jacket in a lightweight corduroy to wear with jeans, etc. would be scrumptuous.

I like the idea of a lightweight corduroy, or a lightweight twill for spring. Gorgeous pattern!!
