I’ve been itching for a red blazer to wear to work and for the holiday season.
I looked around at stores but couldn’t find red blazers made with at least 80% wool. In fact, I walked into JCREW and they make blazers made with “double-serge wool.” I did some research and found that double serge wool is 55%poly and only 45%wool. Can you believe this?! And their blazers are priced between $250-$300! And the blazers are flimsy and hold no form and either made with no interfacing/hair canvas or very cheap interfacing!
So I made this blazer! I had some fun making this! I made my own pattern and decided to do collarless! I’m not sure if I would make collarless again but I love the fit and feel of this blazer!
It is made with 100% wool and lined with silk (so I can stay warm and breathe)!
Like some of my other garments, I set up shop on etsy and selling custom made blazers for all those men and women out there that want quality fibers! Check out my shop on the link below! Take care!
