I finished this blazer a while ago but am just now posting it.
I made muslin of this pattern and fussed with the fit until I thought I had it perfected.
For the fabric, I should have underlined the wool, but didn’t. No good reason why? I just didn’t. And the buttons, I fell in *love* with these at Mood and had to have them and thought they would be perfect for this blazer – but now.
Not so sure. Also, I bought this *groovy* silk charmeuse at Michael Levine’s for the lining, but I think I liked the fabric better on the bolt.
I have worn the blazer once and discover that the fabric snags so into the closet it has gone and has been hanging there every since. Maybe I will like it as time passes . . . who knows.
With every project I learn a little bit more about sewing, about what I like to wear and about how clothes fit and how to fit clothes to myself. This was just one of those garments that I learned a great deal while making it, but in the end I don’t have a blazer that I want to wear.
