:O That turned out wonderfully! I don't exactly need another blazer, but I'm dying for one that I can put princess sleeves on. *scribbles down the pattern number*

yeah, I too dislike shoulder pads... I have been looking for blazers anywhere that don't have them.  That's a nice pattern for one w/o them

That blazer is gorgeous! If I had any sewing ability I'd be making one in a heartbeat. Also, I hear you on the hatred of shoulder pads and the burden of the boobs.

Where did you get the fabric? was it expensive?

Thanks for all the compliments! To all those who said something like they wouldn't be able to one, I just want to say that if you want to try go ahead and try! I mean, there is a leaning curve with everything so don't start on really expensive fabric, but it's really pretty straightforward. Sew, Press, Topstitch.

Where did you get the fabric? was it expensive?

This is just corduory from JoAnns. I think it was on sale or I used a coupon and paid $5 a yard. I used 2.5 yards, so throw in the pattern and buttons and lining, it was probably $25.

i love that so much, but i struggle sewing with patterns, i can usually follow the tutes on here, but thats only if they have clear pics to figure things out, all the technical terms and diagrams confuddle me. but your gorgeous jacket is inspiring me do one one for myself. does anyone on here know of a good site, or something somewhere, where they will explain the technical sewing terms that you come across in patterns in normal people terms?
