my first blazer from sketch

Den Haag, Nether...






When I found this fabric (beautiful fairly thin, 100% wool crepe) in the end of winter sale, I knew immediately what it had to be: a classic blazer, with all the difficult details in place. It’s the first time I tried drafting a lapel collar, and it’s didn’t work out the first time I tried. After I made a muslin and showed it in my sewing course, we all agreed I shouldn’t do back vents or welt pockets because those would ruin the line of the jacket. So I made these pockets with their flaps cut with the front side panel. The collar and bound bound buttonhole required quite a bit of attention to sew, but worked out well. I’m really happy with the result, even though I’ll probably have to wait till the end of September to wear it.

Material Notes

wool crepe, bremsilk lining, fusible knit interfacing, button

    This looks better than anything you’d find in a store! Everything you make looks so professional, and this is no exception. ‘Stunning’ was the word I was going to use as well! ;) I always look forward to seeing what you’ll make next.
