Is there a pattern for a jean jacket that is a little more fitted? I made two of them and to me they just hang on me...no shape at all. I've had some striped cotton in my stash, I think a twill with a little stretch that I would love to sew a casual jacket out of. Any suggestions?

I don't have a specific pattern suggestion, but if you can't find one... how about taking a jacket pattern whose shape you already like, and just making it up with classic jean jacket details (lapped seams, topstitching, patch pockets w/buttons, etc)?
(Your fabric sounds cute; my favorite RTW jacket is a classic jean jacket made from apple green Tencel!)

I can think of two. McCall's have a Palmer Pletsch jacket that appears fitted and is very cute. And Vogue 1036 is a Today's Fit pattern with some interesting piecing on the sleeves - it's a gorgeous jacket.
Trudy's 317 is cute. I couldn't find where anyone has reviewed it though. Some people didn't give Vogue 1036 very good reviews. Marfy has a cute one but I can't see paying $20 for a pattern. I like to sew to save money!
