My „Versace“ Blazer

Added Apr 3, 2013

This is my first true blazer! Ok, I made also a boucle jacket, but this one was technically much more complicated. I am surprised that working on it went smooth, without any troubles (ok, I sewed the lining sleeves right on left, but it was very late and I was very tired :-).

When I saw this fabric in the fabric store, I fell in love with those hearts ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ the saleslady told me this was a Versace design! I don´t know if it is true, but it feels kind of glamorous thinking that it could be…

I chose again a Vogue pattern V8838 and I eliminated the seam near the collar, because I didn´t want to cut those beautiful hearts too much. The right corner seam in the back was rather tricky, I have no idea how I managed it without troubles (beginners luck!).

When I showed my blazer for the first time to my most severe critic – my husband – he only said: “wooooow!” – no critique! At that point I knew I was on the right way :-)

Now I´m very happy with my new blazer! It just lacks a button, I still have to find a suitable one…

      thank you! well, I think the fabric is the most important part of a garment :) but I choose my fabrics mostly by feeling, when I fall in love with a fabric there is no choice any more :)

    This fabric is amazing! I can’t beleive it has sunsets in the inside of the hearts!!! You were very lucky to find it Versace or not:) Very well sewn as well. Your jacket is an eye catcher!

      dear liliv, thank you! the fabric has not only sunsets, but also grapes, roses, stones, cherries, leaves, coloured pencils, palm beach… as it would say “I love the whole world” – I think it is a very positive message :)

      thank you mary! as I said, It wasn´t so hard to do, not so hard as I was expecting, and I had luck with the size, this time it wasn´t necessary to change anything, slowly I understand the vogue sizes :)
