Yea, so I went to the fabric store to get some stuff for soul from Soul eater, and when i was shopping for the fabric to make it out of, I grabbed this cotton based stuff, and, its really stiff. I'm not sure what I should have made it out of.
I think the pics I see, it looks like it was made more out of a fleece like material, I'd really like some help. I don't want to have to think I messed up horribly.
so, please and thank you ^^
Please and thank you ^^
(I asked on the soul eater thread but got ignored so, I'd like some help.)

I don't think fleece would be a good idea. Fleece is too soft and kind hot to wear. It looks like one of those varsity jackets. I'd look those up to figure a good fabric. But if you want something light weight I'd stick with a cotton or polyester.

I'm making the same jacket and had the same problem. I looked at my own varsity jacket to see if it would be ideal for Soul, but the fabric just seems too thick for the way his hangs on him. I eventually thought of sweatshirt fleece. Not regular fuzzy fleece, I mean the stuff real sweatshirts are made out of. You can find it at this page: http://www.fabric.com/apparel-fashion-fabric-fleece-fabric-combed-cotton-sweatshirt-fleece-fabric.aspx

I'm waiting for the swatches to come in the mail to check on the thickness of the fleece, but I'm hoping it's ok. And they sell ribbing for the cuffs too!
