Thankyou for the tutorial!
I totally had to make one for myself, and I thought I'd post the pictures here Cheesy

I appologise for the crappy myspace pose/blurry mirror shot - my mirror is so mucky! And that arrow isn't on my arm, it's on the mirror.

Are Sharpies permanant?

I dunno, Ive never seen a sharpie.

But when I scrawled all over my fake converse I just bought a couple of those thin permanant markers (overhead projector markers or something. OHP pens?) and theyve didnt bleed and theyve held up really well Smiley

Blazers are such a pain and you did a really good job. And I looove the lining color!

I thought that I might offer you a bit of advice for your lapel problem. In order to be able to turn out the lapels without them getting all bunched up in the corners like that, you have to snip almost all the way up to the corner (the inside of the V where you've sewn) before you turn it. It has to be snipped really close to turn out cleanly. Hope that explanation made sense as I'm not so great at explaining things!  Wink

Thankyou! Cheesy
I think I'll be trying this pattern again sometime so thanks for the tip! Smiley

aren't moms great? Mine did the same to me more than once, growing up, and I can't thank her enough!

That said, it looks lovely! I'm with you, lapels are HARD, looks like you did a pretty good job - and I LOVE the green lining!

Now, just thnk how much easier your NEXT one will be! =)

Lol, thankyou! And yeah, thats what my mum keeps telling me, how much eaiser the next one'll be... Haha

That lining is fabulous. You should run around and flash people.  Grin

But really, excellent job.

And really. Flash people.

HAH okay Wink The people of Yorkshire better watch out Tongue

One day, my darling mother took me to town to find me some fabric and a pattern. We returned with miles of black and green fabirc and one pattern (simplicity 4425) for a blazer. Little did I know how hard it was going to be. Bless my mum, she made me finish it when I had several tantrums over it not working out how it was supposed to Wink
So after nearly 2 months of sewing (I had several gaps where I didnt do anything, heh) I FINISHED. And here is is:

THE FRONT (with my knitted duck sitting next to it, wow, i never noticed that was there)

The Lining - my fave part! Smiley

The Back

The bit that gave me so much trouble, the LAPEL. See how the top one is all bumpy? I gave up at trying to get it to lie flat after ripping it out about 50 times -_- The bottom ones better, but not that much better. haha

This is what it looks like on Smiley Sorry about my mucky mirror.

I never realised how hard it is to take a photo of your back Wink

And there is it! So its not perfect, but for my first attempt at following a pattern and the hardest thing I have EVER DONE I think I did pretty well. heh Cheesy
I still have to do the button and button hole, but Im putting off doing that because Im not good with button holes... Wink
