I wanted to make a white blazer for a while now. I found McCall’s m6294 pattern and used view B for my project. I’ve never used linen before and I really like the way it suits this blazer. The only adjustment I made was the lapels. They were weird triangle things that I didn’t like even though the pattern photo looked great. Anyways, I just folded it back and tacked it hand sewing.
2 yards linen, 1.5 yards of lining, thread
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
