Model notes: Our model Metu is 5'-6" and a size 10. She is wearing both a size 10 (black velvet) and a size 12 (grey check) for a slightly slouchier fit. Aisha is 5'-7" and a size 20; her jacket has been made using the D cup pattern pieces available as a free pattern expansion with download.
For the jacket body: medium to heavyweight suitings or lightweight coatings with surface texture such as wool melton, wool flannel, crepe and tweed. Velvet, medium-heavy weight cotton, seersucker and linen may also be used. Please note: tightly woven, smooth surfaced suitings like wool gabardine are not recommended since they can be difficult to fuse using an iron.
For the lining: rayon bemberg, charmeuse, crepe de chine, silky cottons like voile
For the pockets: sturdy cotton like shirting, quilting cotton or muslin (1/4 yd / .25m)

Easy to understand and follow. Challenging techniques. Im learning a lot.
I love this pattern, the fit is perfect for me with very few adjustments. The written instructions are clear and easy to follow but I also had the tutorial to follow which was very helpful. I can't believe I made a blazer, it looks amazing and fits great! I'm already planning my next blazer project.
Nice pattern, instructions and online video. Haven’t made it yet....hope to get to it soon.
only four stars, because I havnt made it yet, but the pattern is very clear, and I am looking forward to making more than one and wearing the blazers.
I loved the pattern when it was released and knew I wanted to make it. Since the purchase, I 'v had shoulder surgery, and haven't been able to sew. The instructions look to be very complete and it will be on my list once I can sew again.
To make this pattern up. But from what I see on the pattern instructions it looks like a good pattern. I have signed up for the class . But as you young people say “life happens”
