I have been wearing this floral blazer to mass the last couple of Sundays. I actually finished it a few months ago, but as it is louder than the cry room at our very family friendly parish, it took me a while to figure out what to wear it with.
Now, I love it. (My friends’ compliments after mass definitely helped in that department. Vain much, Jodi? yes. yes indeed I am.)
I reused the same pattern as my black blazer, which mean I didn’t need to do any major adjustments. (yay!) I added the contrast cuffs and eliminated the lining, but knowing that it would fit without a test muslin was super nice.
- Fabrics: Stretch Twill from Michael Levine’s
- Pattern: McCall’s M6711 (View A)
- Measurements: Height – 5’10”, Bust – 41 inches, Waist – quickly expanding, Hips – 50.5 inches
- Size / Adjustments: See the black blazer post for adjustment details.
Also, thank you to Thread & Grain for the lovely sewing machine necklace that she gave me. I big-puffy-heart-eyes it.
