waistcoat or jacket?

Just got done felting my swatches for a new project. I'm trying to decide between making a Colonial/pre-Revoluntionary War style waistcoat or a full-length jacket. Any opinions?

I have 38oz of fine shetland wool, which knits up/ felts to apprx 3 stitches per inch, at a thickness of 1/8 of an inch. I rather like the idea of a waistcoat, but worry that the "cloth" will be too thick.
