Ok, this is actually a summer item that I sewed a while ago but it somehow took me a long time to actually post it. The blazer is made out of a medium weight cotton fabric I got at IKEA and some leftover cotton/poly-blend as a lining material. I really like the graphic print, especially as I feel like the layout of the lines is the main design element in this pattern and the print picks that up again. I used pattern # 114 of the june issue of Burda 2010.
I blogged about it here:
cotton, cotton/poly-blend, buttons, shoulder pads
