Description

My first blazer!! I’m incredibly proud of myself for completing this project and learned so much in the process. I cut View A (longer version), size 12, A cup, and I made a bunch of fitting alterations. I love how it came out and am filled with sewing euphoria! Yay blazers!! : )

Modifications, details, and lots more photos on my blog:

      Thanks Winnie! This was my first blazer, and I can’t wait to make another one. Aren’t they so stylish and polished? : )

    What a fantastic blazer! I love the sleek fit and that you can easily put your hands in the pockets – all very cool – combined with polka dots! And that pink binding, well…! Great job!

      Thank you for your very kind words! I do love how all the details came out (the pocket bags are pink too). Getting it to fit right was quite the odyssey, but it was totally worth the effort!
