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.
The Heather Blazer is fully lined and features a two-piece sleeve, single button closure, front patch pockets, and lapel collar.
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.
WOVEN INTERFACING: You want the type that looks like fabric (not the papery kind) and is fusible. The papery kind will work in a pinch but it is worth investing in the woven stuff as it will really give your blazer a nicer feel.
KNIT INTERFACING: This interfacing also looks like fabric but has stretch. It will reinforce the collar and lapel without making them too stiff!
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner
Sizing: The Heather Blazer comes in US sizes XS/0 - 7X/32 (63" hip).
