And now for a bit about the Phresh Blazer
I love when a pattern has several options. Macklee’s blazer has no back ruffles, a 3/4 length gathered sleeve and pockets.
If there’s a pocket option I will always add it. I love me some pockets. These are an in seam pocket with a cute flap added. I’d never made this type of pocket before, but didn’t have any trouble.
The reason I didn’t add the back ruffles was simply because I didn’t have enough fabric! I just adore the look of the ruffles. The fabric for this jacket is a brown stretch corduroy, and used to be one of my favorite pairs of pants. In high school I thought they made me look like Julia Roberts. I hope Macklee feels as glamorous as an actress when she wears her blazer.
I think Anne (of Green Gables) would agree that there isn’t much better than a gathered sleeve. I just adore the way they look, and I doubt I will ever make this blazer without them. Both of my sleeves have a flat felled seam running down the outside center for a bit of added texture. It’s very easy to upcycle old clothes into things for very small people, but not so much when you’re trying to get a size 8 blazer out of a pair of size 10 pants!
Here you get just a little peek at the facings. The blazer isn’t fully lined, since it is meant for stretch fabrics that often have soft insides. I used a woven fabric for my facings, which I wouldn’t necessarily recommend, but it turned out alright.
