Glasses and Gold Blazer

Inspired by my first go at a blazer and some pics I saw online, I decided to try a second one in a crazy print. I am always captivated by the quilting cottons at the fabric store, and fell for this beautiful Japanese print. I don’t wear glasses, so I guess this was my subconscious way of getting in on the thick-rimmed glasses craze. Fun and functional and perfect for work or the weekend.

I also took another go at the hong kong seam finish , but this time only for the center back seam. The others I left hidden with french seams .

So excited to wear this to work this week :)

    I love this fabric & of course the blazer. It reminds me of an Orla Kiely print. Where did you get the fabric? Would love to make an A line skirt with this.

    I have been in love with this fabric since I first saw it a few months ago, but wondered what would be the best use. I think you nailed it!

      it was about $18.50 a yard, so yeah… but possibly worth it for something you love!

      Here it was in about 25% more expensive… but yes,sure it’s worth it! it was marketed also as a home decore fabric for soffas and such.i wanted to buy the pink one.
