THE HEATHER BLAZER • Pattern
By FRIDAY PATTERN CO, the Heather Blazer is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: The Heather is an unstructured, modern blazer. This comfortable and stylish jacket has a slightly oversized fit and can be worn in all seasons. It is the perfect editorial layering piece. This pattern is designed to be approachable for the beginner sewist. If you have always wanted to dip your toe into making outerwear but have felt intimidated, this is a great place to start!
Sizing: This is a multi-size pattern, including sizes XS/0 -7X/32, (32”/81cm -60”/152cm chest). XS-XXL were drafted using sample measurements for a B/C cup. 1X-7X were drafted using sample measurements for a C/D cup. Sizing and finished garment measurements (by scanning QR code) can be found here.
Fabric requirements: Fabric requirements can be found here.
Fabric Suggestions: The Heather Blazer is designed for woven fabrics. The easy silhouette of the Heather makes it look great in a variety of fabrics.
MAIN FABRIC: Any woven fabric with a bit of weight to it is great: Linen, suiting, twill, denim, canvas. Avoid fabrics that can't take a press since there is a fair amount of fusible interfacing involved in this project. From our range: Sera Weighty Cotton Blend, Hardy Herringbone Wool or Organic Cotton Twill.
LINING FABRIC: Typically you want to line your jackets with something that will easily slide on and off over other fabrics. Anything a little bit slippery would work. Rayon, silk, a cotton with a tight weave.
WOVEN INTERFACING: You want the type that looks like fabric (not the papery kind) and is fusible. The papery kind will work in a pinch but it is worth investing in the woven stuff as it will really give your blazer a nicer feel.
KNIT INTERFACING: This interfacing also looks like fabric but has stretch, it will reinforce the collar and lapel without making them too stiff!
Trims required: Matching thread, one 3/4-1" sized button, marking too and a hand sewing needle.
Skill Level: Suitable for a confident beginner-intermediate level sewing.
Seam allowances are included in the pattern.
The paper pattern is printed on tissue paper, comes packaged in an envelope and includes highly detailed fully illustrated instructions.
