Description

I used Burda Young Fashion 7607 with some modifications. Primarily, I made the sleeves 3/4 length and did not line it. I used a thick sweatshirt fabric which does not fray and I serged the inside seams and added this ribbon over the seam at the back of the neck to keep it neat.

I also did not add the shoulder pads ~ seriously I am a giant and my shoulders are quite big enough already thank you very much.

The pockets are really simple to make and I like how just a tiny bit of the pocket lining fabric shows at the edges.

In all, an easy pattern with lots of potential, though having tried to line another version I made, I will probably avoid lining any future ones at all cost. No matter how much I read about lining jackets and ‘bagging’ I just could not get it right.

    I have never thought of using sweatshirt fabric for a blazer. It must be so super comfy and I am definitely going to give this a try.

      Thank you! Yes, I did interface the collar and lapels with a light weight fusible interfacing.

    This looks great. I tried to make a sweatshirt blazer but mine ended up a little too floppy and weird for me. Yours is excellent!

      Thanks! I know there are different weight sweatshirt fabrics out there ~ mine was the really thick stuff. It’s a little too warm for summer days, but I still like it.

      Thank you! It was a great choice of fabric, even if I do say so myself! Not only does it not fray, the jacket has some stretch to it, which makes it really comfortable to wear. No pulling across the back and shoulders!
