The GGQB Blazer

Melbourne, Austr...






A jacket made from Vogue 8333 – with lots of couture sewing techniques! It was a fabulous pattern to put together, and I’ve learnt a bucketload along the way – including doing some hand-worked buttonholes!

Material Notes

Silk tussah (raw woven silk) and silk satin lining. Yum!

    I love this jacket Melanie and all the work you put into it. With such a great fit and all the detail working so well, you must be so proud of all the extra work you did to achieve this jacket.

    I just bought this pattern! Your version looks great :) Fabulous fit, your hard work really did pay off. Makes me want to run to the fabric store so I can start making mine. I love those pockets, so clever hidden in the pleats.
