Heather Blazer in Riverbend

You know I love a garment out of Essex, right?! This Heather Blazer in Riverbend feels right at home. When Friday Pattern Co. released their Heather Blazer I wanted to make one right away!

I feel like Essex is the perfect weight fabric for this blazer, I used it for both the lining and the exterior. You could of course use a lighter weight fabric for the lining if you wanted an even lighter weight garment.

New to me

This was my first time making a blazer and I really enjoyed the different arm pattern pieces as well as watching it all come together. The collar is quite easy! I did pop over to watch the videos of the finishing steps of the hem. They were helpful and I think the finished product turned out really well.

I would definitely make another one, maybe a Spring version? I’ve been looking at various blazers for sale, and they can be pretty expensive! I know they make a great staple in your wardrobe, so I think taking the time to make one would definitely be worth it.
