Cropped Red Blazer

Added Mar 17, 2018

A short Blazer is nice to wear, both together with pants and skirts, and it’s very versatile and great for any occasion. When I saw the picture in the Burda Magazine I knew I had to make it in red. I had cotton pique available in my stash, so that’s my choice! I like the tiny pleats at the waist, it’s like a little decoration. For the lining have used poly stretch and it’s nice to wear.

    Beautiful Ellen! I like the combo of the clean pattern with bold color, can be worn to work and for casual occasions :) I have recently started to use ‘fun linings’ instead of just a plain color, even though hardly anyone sees the lining I really like this fun extra!

      Thanks! I’m also very found of colorful linings, and sometimes I combine cotton lining and satin in a plain color for the sleeves to make it smooth to put on :-)

    What a lovely jacket, Ellen. Great to see how the darts coming from the shoulder seam work. And an interesting glimpse of the photographer – is he really using an iPhone to take these photos? I use my iPad but never get clarity like yours. I always assumed you were using a camera!

      Ah yes – my iPad is getting quite old now. I’ll try my newer iPhone next time (with some better lighting!)
