After about a month of work, I’m thrilled to show you my finished Summer Blazer!
Isn’t she a beauty? 🙂 Made of breathable cotton and fully lined in silky Bemberg rayon, this light jacket is the perfect companion for summer days with just a hint of a cool breeze.
Pattern: Simplicity 2446, a classic-cut, fully lined blazer in 2 lengths. This is the cropped version, more or less.
Fabric: The shell is a medium weight cotton print, and the lining is Bemberg rayon (my absolute favorite lining fabric).
Modifications: A bunch of fitting alterations, made for my first blazer. For this version, I chopped 4.5 inches off the hem but left all my other modifications in tact.
Level of crafty satisfaction: I have to admit, I’m feeling pretty smug about this one. 🙂
Before I throw a bunch more photos at you, a few quick notes:
- I wrote two in-progress posts about this blazer (Part 1 and Part 2), featuring close-up photos of all the details and diving into construction and finishing techniques. Check them out for all the nitty-gritty.
- For all my posts on Simplicity 2446, including my first blazer, click here.
- The white fabric is a killer to photograph outdoors, but I’ve included some indoor shots at the end of this post so you can see the details of the print.
All right, it’s picture time!
