The recommended fabrics for the main outer (2 yards of 60" wide) are medium weight wovens although sturdy knits such as Ponte Roma with minimal stretch could also work, it also requires a lightweight lining fabric (1 3/8 yards), optional interfacing and buttons. It is a PDF pattern for sizes XS-XXL (US dress size 0-22) and claims to be suitable as Maternity wear! I haven't personally seen any Maternity photos but with the single button just below the bust, I can see this should work well. The pattern pages have layers to help save ink, siply turn off the size(s) you don't need. Each pattern size has a different style dashed line and although the colours are different they are all very dark so practically impossible to see any difference when printed, the layers feature makes this unimportant though.
This blazer pattern has been in testing for a whole month going through 5 different pattern versions to make sure fit was good for everyone testing and more testers were brought in to double check the final version as well.
The instructions include a mixture of photographs and illustrations and a lot of thought has now gone into making sure both those and the written instructions are as clear as possible.
