We always love seeing what Kelly does with the Grainline patterns. Her garments are always perfectly finished, she has a great eye for fabric, and her blog is so fun to read! We were floored when we saw this blazer. We love the color, fabric, and the fit. It’s a great piece and we had to find out what Kelly had to say about it!

Which pattern did you use? Morris Blazer
What type of fabric or other materials did you use?
I used a really nice stretch cotton twill from Mood Fabrics that has been in my stash for a while. I had used it previously for a jacket and loved it so much that I bought another couple of yards…I am tempted to get more but I think it would be a little weird if I make my entire wardrobe out of the same fabric!
Tell us about your project!
I have been patiently waiting for the Morris pattern to come out, and couldn’t wait to sew it up! I made my usual Grainline size (2) and didn’t make any changes to the pattern. I enjoyed the whole process- it is really fun and quick to sew, doesn’t use a lot of fabric, and the result is so wearable. Mostly I have been throwing it on over a t-shirt or tank with jeans, and it just makes me feel so cool! I recently bought some stretch wool suiting for a basic black version, and I have a really cool shibori-type print stretch cotton sateen for another…I think it’s safe to say there will be quite a few more Morris blazers in my closet soon! Thanks for such a great pattern Jen!
