Inspired by my first go at a blazer and some pics I saw online, I decided to try a second one in a crazy print. I am always captivated by the quilting cottons at the fabric store, and fell for this beautiful Japanese print. I don’t wear glasses, so I guess this was my subconscious way of getting in on the thick-rimmed glasses craze. Fun and functional and perfect for work or the weekend.

I also took another go at the hong kong seam finish , but this time only for the center back seam. The others I left hidden with french seams .

So excited to wear this to work this week :)
