I used Simplicity 4698, an OOP pattern, to make this structured blazer jacket. It has princess seams, a notched collar, and 3/4 length sleeves. I used a blue and white striped cotton seersucker. This jacket went together smoothly and easily and I am very happy with the results. It is well fitting and works with numerous looks that I already have in my wardrobe.
