I went for the cropped variation and made a small size as I wanted a more fitted blazer.
On viewing the fantastic Victoria Blazers on the web & the feel of my velvet & tana lawn I decided to take the collar all the way to the hem line.I also lined the sleeves to give all over tana lawn comfy-ness when worn over bare arms. I also like a fully lined blazer as it hides all of the inner seams perfectly.
I am so happy with the fit & finish. This is a blazer that will be worn time & time again I’m sure.
My shell is made of 100% soft cotton upholstery velvet.
My lining is made of the softest Liberty of London tana lawn cotton.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
