This is what I call a Sandy Work in Progress. Work on this blazer, like the city of New York, had to come to a crashing halt. We did not lose electricity but we had no heat so it was impossible to sew under the covers.
This project is special to me because even though I have tons of patterns, I usually do not make what the actual pattern suggest but rather, I mix and match them to create something that I can be pleased with. However, I decided to try making the actual pattern this time.
This is Simplicity Pattern 2452. I have not made a blazer in years; I am very much into making dresses, but I love blazers and I had a paisley piece of fabric that I thought might be a good fit.
I got very far in making this piece. I simply have to adjust it a little more to my size, finish the hems, and get some button holes on there which I still do not do well. I will show you all the end result when I am finish but for now here is the Simplicity 2452 corduroy/velvet paisley blazer in progress.
