RECOMMENDED FABRIC

Main fabric for woven blazer: Mid- to heavy-weight wovens, such as suiting or tweed, made from wool, linen, or wool blends. Lightweight coating also suitable. Avoid fabrics with a very smooth surface like gabardine, as they will likely shine when pressed.

Main fabric for stretch blazer: Mid- to heavy-weight knit fabric such as stable ponte, or mid-weight stretch wovens such as stretch suiting.

Body lining: If using a non-stretch woven, use a light- weight woven lining such as rayon bemberg or crepe de chine. If using a stretch woven or ponte, use a knit lining for the body, such as ITY or other slick jersey.

Sleeve lining: Light-weight woven lining such as rayon bemberg or or crepe de chine, for both stretch & non-stretch blazers.

Pocket lining: Stable woven such as quilting cotton or shirting.

Interfacing: Mid-weight weft fusible interfacing and mid- weight knit fusible interfacing. Optional: use heavier weight interfacing for pocket welt; fusible horsehair canvas can be used for chest shield interfacing.

Auburn Blazer

I love these patterns, I actually have more than just this. I am a petite size and a plus size at this time. I am short between the bust and shoulder, as well as having a large bust size and relatively small waist. Saying all that, it has always been an adventure to get clothes that really fit, or to have to do all the altering that needed to be done to make my clothes fit. I am a very advanced seamstress having started sewing at age 8, and participating in sewing in 4H from age 10 to 17. I won a number of awards there. Your patterns have been amazing in simplifying the process of alterations. I have not sewn much as yet, I am waiting until after an upcoming surgery for weight loss, Bariatric. I am hoping I will need a new wardrobe!! And these patterns are going to be a help with that!!

Auburn Blazer

I usually get patterns when I see one I like. Hangover, I guess, from paper patterns that drop off the planet after a short period of time. I know PDFs do also, but it seems not as quickly as paper. So, the question is: Do I have more patterns than fabric? Or the other way round? LOL. Since this pattern is more advanced, I will take time to study the instructions and make sure I understand the techniques before I jump in. There are too many more basic garments I need first and are already in the queue, but I love that this blazer is shorter than so many others. I am short and feel drowned with a jacket halfway down to my knees, plus who wants to do all that pattern adjusting! It has princess seams--yeah! So many good features, so will try to work the Auburn in some time during the winter after I get a few more of the simpler basics done.

Finally a perfect blazer pattern

This is absolutely my favorite pattern ever! What an amasing pattern for a blazer for curvy women.
The instructions were very clear although it was sometimes a new way (or order) of sewing for me.
The result turned out perfect. And the fit is beautifull.

Thank you.
