The perfect addition to any outfit
A review of Friday Pattern Company Heather Blazer
I love everything about this blazer. Not just the finished garment, but the whole making process. As expected with Friday Pattern Company, the instructions and drafting of the pattern are excellent.
I would say that the fit is “true to size” for a relaxed fit blazer. I made the size according to my measurements and it is perfect for me. I’m not sure you that you could wear a really thick jumper underneath (you’d probably have to size up) but blouses and long sleeve tees are fine.
It is a great skill builder for notched corners, adding lining and an intro to tailoring without the faff as it is relaxed fit. I have made lined jackets in the past but always struggled with the corner bit, but this has now been completely demystified. The finishing is really good so the insides are just as pretty as the outside.
Cannot rate this higher and 100% recommend it to anyone. I have worn it so much already as a smart casual addition to any outfit.
My version here is made up in a bottom-weight cotton linen jacquard and lined with a lightweight crepe that both lend themselves perfectly.
