Friday pattern company Heather blazer

You may have seen last week we were able to secure some linens at a really great price! This meant we could bring them to you for just $12 a metre! That's less than wholesale! I couldn't quite believe our luck, and couldn't wait to pass this great find on to you.

Sewing can be an expensive pass time, especially if you like to use good quality natural fibres (who doesn't right?) So when we are able to find great quality stock like this at a great price, it makes me so happy to be able to pass on the savings to you!

Now, it was hard to pick a favourite.... but the Belfast natural stripe was just perfect for a natural coloured linen blazer that I'd had in my head for a while.


The perfect pattern was quite obvious, the Heather blazer from Friday pattern company. I've had this on my to make list for a while now, and with the weather cooling off, and the arrival of these linens, the time was right.




I cut a size large based off my bust measurement and it ended up the perfect fit. Oversized, but not baggy.

I used the linen as the outer and an ivory silk habotai as the lining

I used a lightweight iron on interfacing where required, and this worked well to provide enough structure but not make it too stiff, as the linen has a lovely drape to it.


The blazer is fully lined, but don't let that scare you! The construction is actually pretty simple, especially the collar, which can be daunting.




There is a great sew along on the Friday pattern company website that I referred to when attaching the sleeve lining at the cuff. I'm such a visual person, it was hard to get my head around it via the written instructions, but the sew along explained it simply and clearly.


There's a second video that covers the construction of the hem corners, also very helpful!


All up, this make took me about 5 hours, and I'm really happy with the end result. I can definitely see more Heather's in my future!




This blazer will work with so many looks! I've styled it here with a dress and long boots, but it would work just as well with jeans and a tshirt.




Till next time, happy sewing xx
