This is Gigi, my 9 year old neighbour modeling the blazer which is also hers to keep. I loved the pattern in the magazine and though I don’t have young children, I am lucky to be able to borrow one from my lovely next door neighbour. Gigi loved her blazer!
This is made from a slightly stretchy wool fabric and the bias edging is made from a stretchy satin. Never again will I use stretchy satin as bias edging as it drove me insane.
Anyway, hope you like it and it will inspire you to make it for your child or if like me you like to make children’s clothing, but don’t have one, borrow a neighbour’s kid. hahaha
