I was really excited when I saw the blazer on the cover of the october issue of Burda magazine. Originally I wanted to copy it entirely but I couln’t find a (white) waffle piqu anywhere so I ended up buying this olive colored tweet. I used suede-leather scraps as accents for the pockets and leather buttons I had in my stash. It wasn’t as complicated to sew as I expected and I love the result. It’s nice to own something with a more unusual cut.
As always, there are more pictures on my blog
