Grainline Studio's Morris Blazer is a winner for me. I finished it a couple of weeks ago and it is already a high rotation garment in my autumn wardrobe. While the pattern is great and I love the finished product, a word of caution about fabric choice. I bought this interesting double sided ponte (?) print from Tessuti's Surry Hills store with a Morris blazer in mind. What I didn't realise is that four-way stretch isn't suitable for the design. So I ended up with an odd bubble at the hemline on the right front. To fix it one of my clever real-life sewing mate at the Australian Sewing Guild suggested a tuck dart under the collar. It's an invisible mend that rescued my project.
Next weekend is a sewcation - three blissful day with nothing to do but sew with women who share my passion. I'm always over ambitious about what I can achieve at the annual getaway. True to form, I've cut out four garments and plan to cut one more. Lets see just what can be achieved. Meanwhile happy sewing and thanks for your encouragement.
