Hello everyone! I have pictures of my March makes ready for your perusal. Because I have five different garments to show you I decided to break it up into three separate posts. First up is my Morris Blazer.
Out of the five things I made for this month, I think this one will get the most wear. I am absolutely in love with it! As a reminder, here is the fabric I decided to use:
The stretch cotton poplin was a perfect choice. My topstitching sunk into the fabric like a dream, it pressed beautifully and, because of the slight amount of stretch, it is extremely comfortable to wear.
The inside is pretty fantastic as well. Since it is an unlined jacket, I decided to get fancy and do a Hong Kong seam finish on the inside. I had an old Banana Republic silk scarf from that 90's that I, for some reason, held onto so I cut it into bias strips and used it for the inside. This is one of the things I love most about sewing for myself. I love being able to add details like this to really make my garment one-of-a-kind. Isn't the inside pretty?
That's it for my first make. As a recap, I strongly urge anyone who is thinking about purchasing this pattern to purchase it and make it up as soon as possible. It is such a great wardrobe builder. I'm sure there will be a Fall/Winter version made later in the year.
Next up will be my white button down and dusty rose culottes. Until then . . .
