2015 Pattern Recap: Morris Blazer

2015 Pattern Review: Morris Blazer

Up next in our 2015 Pattern Recap is the Morris Blazer. This blazer originally made it’s debut as part of my Hound Fall/Winter 2011 collection and I think it still looks just as good as when it was originally designed!

Up next in our 2015 Pattern Recap is the Morris Blazer.

It features a flattering front angled hem, 3/4 length sleeves, and a shawl collar. The Morris can be made up in either a woven with a bit of stretch or a stable knit. Both of these allow for ease of movement and give the drape necessary to retain the relaxed style the Morris was designed with.

This blazer originally appeared back on the blog in this post but it took about 30 months of requests to get it across to me that you guys really wanted this pattern!

I also can’t forget to mention the time I taught the Morris Blazer at Fancy Tiger Crafts in Denver and accidentally convinced about half my Instagram followers that Jaime and I were actually twins. I had to add the #justkidding after realizing just how many people I fooled. Sorry guys!!

    I love how versatile this pattern is! At first I wasn’t sure if it was one that would fit well into my wardrobe but now that I can see how many different ways it can be worn, I’m looking at it in a completely different light. Thanks for sharing the awesome inspiration! 🙂
