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?

Oh my god.

I'm not easily impressed, but honey, far out.

That is so good.

And remember, if you don't point out the mistakes, no one will know, especially non-sewers!

congratulations, I can't wait to see othe things you've made!

was it hard to sew?
I've been meaning to do a jacket with velveteen or curduroy.

Any tips?
