it is dfinitely not a circle - a rectangle or a trapeze, with inseampockets. Be sure to choose very drapey fabric for the skirt and good quality tee because the skirt will pull the tee a lot

You can easily find a Simplicity pattern that with tiny modification will render the same result.

Ziabox,
It is not necessarily hard but is not easy either. If you unpick, marks will likely be left, so a muslin to proof the fit is a good idea. Also extra care when pressing is needed to not kill the nap. It is easier to stretch the fabric for shaping than it is to shrink it. You have to be careful when cutting to cut everything with the nap. That is about all I can think of right now.

Hello Everybody,
I am brand new to this forum as far as posting but have been reading it off and on for some time.
It has been a while for me since I've made my last blazer (more than one year) and I am so relieved that this project is finished. It is a knockoff of an Ingwa Melero Blazer that I saw on shopbop.com some time ago.
This is my Knockoff:

and here is the original from shopbop:

For more pictures, here is a link to my album with photos of the original garment as well as of my knockoff.

The pattern used as a base was Simplicity 4698 but it was signicantly changed - lapel, collar, sleeve, closure, belt are all new elements.

I have made a corduroy jacket before but this time the fabric itself was thicker and tailoring it was harder. Besides, I think I made every possible mistake that could have been made while making it - some mistakes were saves, some were not quite saved, but it is what it is... Luckily corduroy is a casual fabric and the not so well saved mistakes sort of work with the casual feeling, I hope Wink

Do you think I pulled it off?
