I have a goody to share with you today!
As you know by now I’m a regular tester for Wardrobe by me and Christina keeps giving me new challenges and I’m always learning something new which I think is totally awesome! I’ve made long and short pants, two coats, a bikini, a bomber jacket and a number of tops and dresses and now I’ll show you my newest make.
Let me introduce you to The Blixen Blazer!
This pattern is so great and I love my blazer so much! The blazer is fully lined so the inside is just as pretty as the outside. I didn’t find lining fabric with stretch for knit fabrics so I used regular polyester with no stretch. It looks pretty but I miss the stretch function, so now I’ve ordered the right kind and I’m going to replace my lining even though it means using the dreaded seam ripper. I just need this blazer to be PERFECT!
The pattern includes back darts, two piece sleeves and even shoulder pads, all those details gives you a very professional looking garment.
The welt pockets are so pretty and functional which you don’t always get on RTW blazers.
I made my usual size 6 graded out to 10 at the hips. The pattern also includes an option for 3/4 length sleeves and a peplum back. The fabric I used was absolutely perfect for this pattern it’s Indigo knit stripes by Robert Kaufman which I bought from Imagine Gnats. Guess what, she even has some still in stock, here is the listing.
Are you wondering about the dress I’m wearing underneath? I just realised I forgot to bring it to the blog, shame shame! I think I’ll just let you wonder about it for a few days and than I promise to tell you all about it at the end of the week. I’m on Easter Holiday all next week so I need to have something to do!
If you want a little sewing challenge and a great blazer you should definitely get this pattern. It’s not that difficult to sew you just need to take your time and be diligent and press a lot! There are a lot of pieces to cut out since you have the main fabric, lining and interfacing so prepping is the most mundane part. After your done with that it’s so rewarding to see this great blazer come together when you start sewing.
It’s still on sale for $12.00 instead of $15.00 so get your copy here and make yourself something nice!
