I had to postpone finishing this jacket for a few weeks. The options for shoulder pads were limited at the local fabric store near me; so I decided to take my search online. Wawak.com has a wonderful array of shoulder pads and everything else under the sun.

This fabric was purchased earlier this year from JoAnn’s. I used Vogue, option C with no alterations. I’m very pleased with the pattern, the fitted waistline is a favorite feature of the pattern, and I know that it will be in heavy rotation this Fall/Winter season. Besides, you can never have too many blazers. Blazers worn outside the office adds sophistication and even a bit of edge especially when worn with jeans and heels.
