Description

A “blasphemous” experiment – making a classic fitted blazer with polar fleece in a “toxic” color. I’m still not sure if I love or hate the final result, but there is something definitely star-trekish about it.

Material Notes

Polar fleece knit.

    My mother is trying to make me the Burda Bell coat #116 out of camel fleece. We would like to line but are not sure what to use . Your jacket has a knit layer. Does the fleece have a knit layer or did you line it. Thank you Merry PS the jacket is beautiful.! This Merry again. My mother and I are so impressed with your fantastic fleece jacket. You workmanship is exquisite. We are still curious about the fabric because you mentioned it has a knit backing. Is this a specific type of fleece. we only have a Hancock and Hobby Lobby Fabrics in are area. Did you purchase the fleece online? If so is there a specific type of fleece to look for? I live in the Midwest and fleece is very popular but you never see anything as fashion forward as what you have created and fleece has such possibilities. Kudos again on your work of art. Merry

    Stunning. Beautiful details. I am amazed at your choice of fleece. It looks like wool. Did you line it? How did you finish the seams?

    From the picture, I would never have guessed that was polar fleece! Excellent! I think that’s an experiment turned success!

      It is a heavier polar fleece with a knit layer on one side which I think is quite commonly used in sportswear.

    I like it. I attempted to do something similar, but never finished it. You’ve given me inspiration to just go for it!

    Really? I totally love it! Great topstitching, and I think the fleece translates fabulously in this pattern.

      Did you use a pattern? I’d love to know what it was if you did.

      Thank you! It is very loosely based on Burda 11/2010, #104, I used the same pattern for my “chanel” jacket. But I fitted it extensively – did an FBA first, fitted the waist and back a lot and also altered the sleeve a bit.

      Thank you, the material is very forgiving, easy to sew – the topstitching looks much cleaner than it actually is.

      Thank you! I’m still not sure if this experiment with sports-wear fabric works – it still feels a bit inappropriate for a blazer. I got the idea because I get very cold when I travel (I’m totally freezing on the plane every time I fly!) and like to travel in jackets – but wool tends to get itchy and wrinkly. But I will probably start to love this traveling option very soon :)
