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 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.
