Floral Blazer

This lovely stretch cotton twill that was gifted to me by Minerva was perfect for this blazer!


I used view C of Simplicity 1421.  Of course I made a few hacks! 😊



I added a border to the pockets to coordinate with the black facings and collar using black stretch twill. 

I also eliminated  the buttons on the sleeves.  Been there, done that!  LOL!

I made my own bias tape for the Hong Kong finish - using a pretty print from my stash.




I love princess seams and these didn't disappoint.
  I love the shaping on this jacket!
 This is my 2nd time using this pattern, so it has become one of my TNTs! 

I always use my buttonhole kit after stitching buttonholes.  I makes for a nice, clean cut! 

I will be wearing this jacket year round...with jeans and skirts.


Of course I added my label - to the facing!



Do you have a favorite jacket pattern...or two? 

Do you love princess seams?
