Being a stay/work at home mom, I rarely wear dressier clothes, and don’t keep them in my closet. I needed to Skype with a client a while back and realized that I didn’t have anything other than tees and a few sweaters. This blazer will be the perfect addition to my casual, need to dress up once in a while wardrobe!

You can get your copy HERE* for $6.50 today to Monday 11:59PM EST. The price will go up to $9 after that. All the other single patterns are also 30% off during that time.

Pattern details:
Sizes XS-XXL
High-Low or Straight Hem
Easy Construction with Clear Photos
Short, 3/4, and Long Sleeve Lengths
Straight or Scalloped Sleeve Hem
Suitable for Maternity Wear
Layered Pattern

I sewed a straight size Medium with the long sleeves. I love that the pattern has layers, making it super easy to print, tape, and cut out my size. This also helps if you need to combine sizes to get the right fit.

I love the high-low hem, as it provides that extra coverage especially when I sit down!

I used a stretch denim for the exterior and a heavy costume satin for the lining, and this is a perfect weight for  the cooler mornings and evenings we tend to have in the spring! I am thinking another in a linen or heavy cotton with a think lining will be perfect for the summer!

I opted to use a brooch rather than a button to close my blazer and I love that this gold elephant worked so well! The ellie was given to me as a gift one year from my mother in law, as she always found new ellies for me (i was an avid collector for years!)
