The Dreaming of Spring Blazer |FREE PDF Pattern| day 1 of the Sew along

EDITED: You have until the 30th of November to link your blazer to the flickr group to have a chance to win a free pattern for the Bubble Shorts pattern by DoGuincho. Read more about it here.


If you are new to my blog, you might not know that I have promised to share a pattern for the blazer I made my daughter when I competed in the Sew Off. If you were following already back then, well, I am sorry I kept you waiting for so long. If you haven't yet, you might want to check out the blazers my friend testers made. You'll love them, I'm so sure!

It was about time to give something back, since I've been getting so much from this wonderful sewing community, and keep up with my word. After all, I've always heard it's better late than never, right? And it's FREE so: please don't complain.

This pattern will fit a 18 months to 2 year old, but I believe it has space to grow - especially on the sleeves department. I guess it really depends on your child. Mine was about 21 months when I made it for her, she's now 27 months and still fits!

Today I'm finally releasing the PDF pattern (size 2T) for the blazer. And the first steps to its construction. If you want to make one for a little girl you know, then make sure to sew along with us. By the time you finish, share your creation in the flickr group. We all would love to see it.

So, do you want to make one?! 
Here's what you'll need:
1 yard main fabric
1 yard lining fabric
1/2 yard interfacing
30" of ribbon
eyelets and punch (optional)
1 big button (optional)
PDF pattern, which you can get HERE

Today we will prepare the pattern. What should you know about it before you print?
- make sure you select "Print at 100%" or "No scaling"
- the pattern can be printed out on A4 sized paper
- there's a 1" square to test if you've printed the right size on page 4
- 3/8" (1 cm) seam allowances included in the pattern (except for the button placket, it has no seam allowances included)
- some of the pieces didn't fit entirely on each sheet, so they were cut out, you will have to tape them back together.
Example: for the centre front piece, you will have to tape "centre front piece A" to "centre piece B"

When you're done printing and taping your patterns, you will have 8 pieces to work with.

Start by cutting your main fabric. For this blazer I chose pink with polka dots. 

Then, cut your interfacing pieces.

And to finish for today, cut your lining pieces. 

I know, it doesn't seem like a lot when you read it here, but these are a lot of pieces to cut, so you'll be done by the time you get them all cut. Just like I did. 

SEW ALONG

  6. Thank you so much for sharing this fantastic pattern! I was able to use it as a wonderful starting point and I modified it to make a little prince jacket for my 16-month old son for Halloween this year!
