Sewing the Stash March Reveal - Part One

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 . . .
