Yes, Another Blazer!

Pattern: Simplicity 4302 Khaliah Ali Collection Women's/Women's Petite Jacket with front variations.

                                                          
                                                                 Sizes: 18W - 32W


Alterations: Sway back decrease of 1" & decreased sleeve cap 1 1/2 inches to remove gathers
 
 
 This is the same pattern used here , here ,here, and here,
Fabric: Polyester Poplin can be purchased here
Lining: Polyester purchased from Fabric Mart a couple of years ago
 
I started purchasing this fabric from Vogue Fabrics once I realized it was the same fabric as the pants I wore daily as a teacher and a several of my husbands church suits.
I like it because it is durable, doesn't wrinkle, plain weave, comes in vibrant colors, inexpensive, and it's washable. 
 
Although, I really needed another black blazer, my friend had been talking about purchasing one so I surprised her and gifted it to her.
Another one for me will come sometime this year. I probably will not bore you by posting it unless I use a different pattern.

    1. Thank you! One thing about classic/traditional is this never goes out of style. There may be many new trends, but some things pass the test of time.

    1. Robyn, this is the one blazer for you to try. It is put together in a different manner than most.

    1. Thank you! There are exceptions to the rule with this kind of lining. The orange outfit that 's made by this pattern was polyester knit and it's too thin for a printed lining. So, always do the test ensuring the lining doesn't show through the fabric.
