For this challenge I took two basics that everyone has in their closet; a Hooded Sweatshirt and Black T-Shirt and turned them into unique and sophisticated blazer. This is an original design that I initially intended to use a woven fabric for, but I like how it turned out in the sweatshirt knit. It makes the structured blazer more comfortable and suitable for everyday wear.
Besides a seam ripper, my iron was one of the most useful tools when creating this garment. I used it to not only press out the wrinkles but also in fusing the interfacing, which gave the wrap around collar the structured look I was going for.
