Friday Pattern Co - Paper Sewing Pattern - The Heather Blazer
The Heather is an unstructured, modern blazer. This comfortable and stylish jacket has a slightly oversized fit and can be worn in all seasons. It is the perfect editorial layering piece. This pattern is designed to be approachable for the beginner sewist. If you have always wanted to dip your toe into making outerwear but have felt intimidated, this is a great place to start!
MAIN FABRIC: Any woven fabric with a bit of weight to it is great. Linen, suiting, twill, denim, canvas. Avoid fabrics that can’t take a press since there is a fair amount of fusible interfacing involved in this project.
LINING FABRIC: Typically you want to line your jacket with something that will easily slide on and off over other fabrics. Anything a little bit slippery would work. Rayon, silk, a cotton with a tight weave.
You may need to purchase extra fabric if your fabric has a heavy nap, is directional, striped, or has an obvious repeat.
