Melissa from Blank Slate Patterns and Melly Sews is hosting a sew-along to make a women’s blazer. Hers is made from a gorgeous blue velvet, but any heavier weight fabric would work. And if you can wear a size small, she’s got a free pattern for you to use. If you need another size, she provides a link to a good pattern to use as well as information on drafting your own pattern from a sloper. (Her pattern will make a blazer with these finished measurements: bust, 35?, waist 31?, 20? length from back neck.) Go to the first post in the sew-along here.
