This is not for the faint of heart. There are some "quick and dirty" blazer patterns out there, and this is definitely not one of them. This is a professional, lined blazer. This pattern requires attention to detail, but Christina has laid everything out to fit together well and provides great directions. This sew is worth the investment of time to get a perfect fitting garment.
This pattern is so great! I can't believe I have a perfectly fitted blazer jacket that I made myself.
This is a fun pattern to sew. I usually have a difficult time finding RTW clothes that fit me well. (I'm tall but curvy) When I sew for myself I usually have to adjust the pattern to make it work. This pattern easily allows for that and the fit of the pattern is amazing. This is a challenge but the construction makes the end result amazing (the inside looks as good as the outside!) This should be a must in the pattern library for anyone wanting a professional wardrobe!
I have so many woven blazers that I love but never wear...and I didn't understand why until I finished and wore my new Blixen Blazer...and now I know...knit blazers are amazing!! I opted for the peplum version, and I absolutely adore my blazer! I love that I can throw it on as a top layer walking out the door and instantly look put together, almost regardless of what else I have on. My momiform got an instant upgrade! I already have a 2nd on my cutting table and can't wait to finish it up and add it to my wardrobe as well! Thanks for another great pattern!!
There is always a much needed Blazer Jacket in one's wardrobe. I had the opportunity to test the Blixen Blazer. While it may not be a garment to sew if you are are a beginner sewist. But, the instructions are very clear and easy to follow for any sewist. This knit blazer is very comfortable to wear dressed up or casual and has a modern twist with a peplum back panel. Another great design by WMB.
