I’m normally not to much in garment sewing anymore. I don’t follow the dream of an “entirely handmade wardrobe”, I’m simple not interested enough in mode or garments to spend my time making them. My passion is more about decoration an interior design. Nevertheless, from time to time, I see a garment pattern I fall immediately in love with. This happens one month ago for the Schieke Wiebke Blazer I saw on Instagram. I love blazers already, but this one is a perfect match between chic an sporty, the contrasting collar is a highlight and – the pattern is relative easy to sew…. very important for me, as I’m not an experienced garment sewer. The pattern is in German, very detailed and well explained. It’s for jersey fabrics, so extra comfy, and all edges are worked open! Wasn’t sure about this at all in the beginning and my first fabric wasn’t really the best choice as it started to fray around the edges a lot, but finally I love this style, so much I made two blasers in one month and normally I’ve a third version in a light grey in mind…. but we’ll see….
I bought both fabrics in my local fabric store “Sudocoud“. The darker blue is a jersey matelassé effect jeans, very lovely and warm. The lighter blue is an Interlock “Fishbone blue” from last year and unfortunately discontinued I think.
