Yesterday I had the opportunity to test another pattern for Melly Sews, this time a fully-lined blazer. I was a little intimidated at first, but the pattern was awesome, easy to follow, and the results were pretty stellar!
At first I was going to go to the fabric store and find some super cool fabric to use, but then I remembered the GIGANTIC pile of fabric in my sewing room and decided to shop up there instead. The brown canvas was the original plan…until I had cut everything but the sleeves and I was about 2 inches shy of the amount I needed. GRRR!
Then I remember a faux leather jacket that was in the Goodwill pile and decided it would be awesome if the sleeves and collar were leather! It ended up with a decidedly 80’s vibe that I totally dig.
The lining was an old white tab top curtain that got a makeover courtesy of a DIY foam stamp and some fabric paint.
I was going to make a tutorial for it, but there’s already a great one HERE on Papernstitch.
Well I guess that’s all for today, thanks for stopping by!
