Print blazer with a black collar and black button paired with print roll up shorts.
Blazer has a black lining,with flap pockets and a slit at the back.
The shorts have a pockets,no waistband,made a facing instead as i felt the waistband will make the waist too high.Didnt make a turn up on the pants i roll them up i like the contrast of the reverse side of the fabric.
Patterns i drafted myself.
Fabric is a linen blend.
Used 1m fabric for the jacket and 1m polycotton for lining, 1 button and a zip i made shorter for the pants.
