fabric, pattern and lining for new blazer..
I really love this blazer, I wear it often. So when it came to the May FBlogger challenge today, I knew what I would pick as my Spring staple: blazers.

I've been looking around for a plain one (try as I might, elephants don't seem to go with everything I own) and whilst I've found what seems to be the perfect one on Topshop's site, I decided I would challenge myself to make one, hence the pattern above and the material I bought for it last week. I also got some plain pink linen as well; I'm going to make a couple in the different lengths from the pattern - watch this space.

As for the outfit, I bought this mustard dress from the lovely Charlene's blog sale a while agoand I love the colour. I was a bit concerned about the elasticated waistband being unflattering, but I don't think it looks as bad as I thought when I look at the photos..

  1. Can't wait to see the blazer all made - I totally envy people that can make their own clothes!
