This is the Eva blazer I made for my mom, she wanted a new blazer because her other knit blazer is getting old and picked. Unfortunately it wasn’t the easiest fabric to work with with this particular project, especially because I altered the pattern a bit and added a lining which caused me a lot of problems. I picked out some cool wooden buttons but my mom said she’d prefer plain black boring ones, but my machine’s buttonholer wasn’t working properly (especially with this fabric…) so I ended up sewing the buttons on and giving it snap closure. I’m not happy with this project as I don’t think it lays right among other things. I told her I don’t really expect her to ever wear it but I guess she doesn’t think it’s that bad.
Anyways, here it is.
