Description

After about a month of work, my Summer Blazer is complete! Made of breathable cotton and fully lined in silky Bemberg rayon, this light jacket is the perfect companion for summer days with just a hint of a cool breeze.

The pattern is Simplicity 2446, a fitted, classic-cut blazer. I made a bunch of fitting alterations, but no major design modifications. It fits like a dream!

Lots more photos, details, and info on alterations on my blog:

      Thank you so much, Mary! The yellow piping is my favorite part of the blazer – definitely the highlight. :)
