Blazer glory

Added Mar 4, 2010

by madammeke

Helmond, Netherl...






My very first blazer!
I used Schnittvision pattern software, a few sewing books, and lots of patience to decipher the enigmatic German instructions.
My daughter was the first victim, but I will be sewing more jackets for myself from now on.
You can find detail pics on my Flickr site:

Material Notes

Gray fabric from my stash; I suspect a polyester/cotton blend. Lining fabric from stash; crepe?

    I absolutely love this! Especially the pretty lining. I really hope one day I’ll be good enough to sew something like this!

    This is a gorgeous jacket and I love it with the higher placement of the buttons. The contrasting lining really adds a beautiful individual touch. Lovely!

    I love, love, love this blazer. The colour, the lining, the cute little gold buttons. I think you did a great job. I hope to attempt something like this in the future. Great job.

      Thanks! The fit was perfect.
      The software asks for detailed measurements for each garment.

    i really like the placement of the buttons- which are which cute btw- the way they are slightly higher up would be greta for girls with less of a bust than i have… but i could work around it haha. great job!
