Morris Blazer

Can I tell you about my new favorite handmade garment? I made the Morris Blazer from Grainline Studios a few months ago out of our chambray linen stretch fabric and loved it so much that I made two more! The pattern calls for a stable knit which the chambray stretch was absolutely perfect for. But I wanted to know if woven fabrics cut on the bias would work as well This blazer is made from cotton moleskin. This fabric is a cross between canvas and flannel. It washes up so soft! I love it paired with a Wiksten Tank! I used 1-7/8 yards of fabric and cut my pieces on the bias. I had plenty of fabric left over to make a pair of Ollie Slippers for my sister. I love how this one turned out. It has less drape then the stretch chambray blazer but it still has plenty of stretch in the back and shoulders which I like. I would skip the interfacing on the collar with this fabric. Moleskin has plenty of structure all by itself. I made this blazer from Mustard Shetland Flannel cut on the bias. It is so soft and cozy and has the least amount of structure. Also tried a cropped length on this one. It's shortened by about three inches. I find it really helpful to try on a garment to get an idea of what size I need to make and what I might need to adjust. So I will have one or two of these in the shop for you to try on. If you are a little nervous about jumping into garment sewing, not to worry! This is a great garment to start with. This blazer is unlined and has simple construction. And we are offering this class in January!
