Wendy had never made a jacket before – with the expert help of Make@140 in Plymouth she worked this beautiful shocking pink kid mohair and wool blend worsted suiting into the Jasika Blazer by Closet Core Patterns. We love it so much!
A blazer needs various interfacings to make it lie correctly, this pattern is great for detailing what you need and where, it utilises a speed tailoring method (using iron-on interfacings) which makes it super accessible for adventurous novices and creates impressive results.
This jacket uses weft interfacing along with hair canvas and 1/2″ thick tailored shoulder pads. Just to truly pop the colours Wendy chose to line this jacket in a fabulous pink and orange viscose satin lining
