I finally finished my new blazer after three weeks working on it.
This blazer is my entry to #sewyourwardrobebasics September challenge hosted by Stefanie @seaofteal Sorry I'm late 😑
Pattern: I used Budastyle 107-10/2019 size 19 with adjustments.
Fabrics: cotton blend with a little stretch in dark blue and silk satin in brown for the lining. Both fabrics and notions (threads, buttons and fusible interfacing) were from stash.
The original pattern has welt pocket with flap and short style blazer. As I wanted to save time, I changed into patch pocket and lengthened the hem 11 cm because I wanted a longer version.
Also, as my fabric was cotton blend with a little stretch (pattern suggestion: knit fabric), I have to make adjustment on the pattern.
I did full bicep adjustment on the upper sleeve pattern, I slashed the pattern in three and connected them again.
The result was fine in sleeves but the waistline still too tight. And as I don't feel like to make the second muslin, I added 1 cm in both sides of the back started from the waistline down to the hipline.
Also, pinned almost all the edges before I hand sewed the lining to the blazer. It was a very slow progress but well worth the time and effort.
For the buttons, I used the souvenir from my trip to Singapore. I'm happy I finally use them.
Happy sewing and stay safe ❤
