This blazer was made with the most beautiful camel hair fabric from Mood Fabrics and lined with this poly from Mood. The fabric sews, irons and cuts like a dream. I am so in love with this amazing fabric.
The pattern I used was Vogue V8333 Claire Shaeffer’s custom couture. I consider myself a pretty fast sewer and can generally complete a look in one to two days but due to this pattern being couture, It took several days and a few headaches but I love the fit. True to form, I made a few alterations:
-Shortened the pattern for a blazer that hits more at the waist
-Created an extended wide sleeve cuff as opposed to the traditional button sleeve cuff.
-Because I added the fur around the neck, I created a mandarin collar instead of the lapel collar
The top was made with a satin tartan I purchased when I first starting sewing. When I picked it up I had no idea what I was going to do with it but figured a pussy bow top was an appropriate addition to a blazer. I used Vogue V8772 view B with no pattern alterations.
