If you were making a jacket (blazer type not outer) out of this fabric, which way would you have the stripes go? Horizontal or vertical?

There is a 10% stretch across the grain

You want the stretch to go around you.

The stripe is subtle..nearly a solid so you can just let the stretch guide you.

A pretty fabric.

With only 10% stretch I'd use it which ever way works best with the pattern and personal preference.
