Ombre Wool Knit Morris Blazer
Ever have a fabric speak to you? When I saw this ombre houndstooth wool knit I instantly saw this finished jacket. I had been wanting to make the Morris Blazer for some time but I guess I was just waiting for the right fabric!
I made up the pattern in another ponte knit I had in my stash just to check fit and style. The original pattern is a cute cropped jacket but I wanted for of a full length, cozy blazer for this fall/winter. I ended up lengthening both the sleeves and the body and used the lengthening lines to help with pattern matching, I absolutely love how this jacket turned out and can't wear it enough. It truly is a statement piece but still perfect for everyday wear.
Fabric is from Style Maker Fabrics. Check out my blog post for more specific details about lengthening and tips for matching patterns on this pattern.
