I really love this jacket and want to attempt to recreate it using a blazer I already own.


Has anyone tried creating a blazer using an exisiting blazer they owned? Is there a tutorial floating around somewhere?

thanks for your help.

can't say I've created one myself but you could search the whole site for blazers and i've seen a few patterns for similar blazers on the simplicity website.

sorry i can't be of more help, but good luck x

Copying an article of clothing can be tricky, but I've seen several books at my local library dedicated to couture sewing techniques, and they usually include an excellent chapter on making duplicates of garments from pre-exisiting garments. The best way to make a copy is to take the blazer apart and trace the pattern pieces, but of course then you have to put it back together. Making a copy of a blazer without taking it apart is a bit more involved, but is good when it's made of something you don't want to have to resew such as leather.

I hope this helps!
