Buy the Evans Blazer sewing pattern from Hey June Handmade. The Evans Blazer is a classic, simple, unlined knit jacket in two views. View A has a traditional blazer silhouette with a curved centre front hemline, welt pockets, and a button closure. View B is a cropped angled jacket with a pointed centre front hemline and a draped lapel. Both views feature a shawl collar, side inset pieces, and a two-piece sleeve.
The Evans is the blazer pattern for everyone wanting that classic blazer silhouette as a layering piece without the headache and hassle of a fully lined and tailored woven jacket. It was designed to be a wardrobe substitute for other casual knit layering pieces such as cardigans and hoodies, for a slightly more polished look without sacrificing comfort or ease of sewing. The Evans works beautifully with just about any outfit, from workwear to sundresses, boyfriend jeans to skirts, and even cut-off jean shorts!

Suggested fabrics: Fabric choice is the most important factor when making the Evans Blazer. Light to midweight sturdy knits are ideal. Stretch percentage isn’t very important, as long as it’s at least 30%, but recovery is extremely important. The fabric should “snap back” when stretched. It is important to note these factors despite the fabric label. For example, some sweater knits will work beautifully, as long as they are more tightly knit and have recovery. Conversely, some pontes may be too heavy. Look for fabric with a weight around 8 – 12 oz (250 – 350 gsm). With these caveats, the best fabrics for the Evans are ponte, double knit, rib knit, sweater knit, heavy cotton/lycra jersey, liverpool, and interlock. Note that just about any sturdy knit fabric will work for the jacket outside the lapel area. Heavier weight knits or knits without recovery will need extra tack stitches and/or stabilisation to lay correctly at the lapel.
