Description

Classic blazer from burda magazine 2/11. I simplified the sewing process by leaving out the button details on the sleeves and the upper welt pocket. It was a fairly easy pattern to follow, and a beautiful fit so I plan to make it again soon in a printed striped fabric.

Material Notes

I used a non-stretch suiting fabric instead of jersey and there wasn’t a problem with the fit or anything.

    Beautiful! I’m going to try mine with a non-stretch fabric also.

    Does anyone know which sizes the pattern lines indicate? There is no legend and there are too many sizes listed in the sizing guide for me to guess confidently. Also, the pattern instructions say there are varying allowances based on the type of edge but on the pattern page on the website, it says there is no allowance.

    How did y’all deal with these ambiguities?
