Sew What? Simplicity 1421 Sew-A-Long Blazer....That's What!

Well here it is Peeps! My Sew-A-Long Blazer

Pattern: Simplicity 1421

I fell in love with this fabric from Michael Levine's Fabrics [ HERE] in an Instagram picture posted by @mingoandgrace. She made a cute jacket and I was like, "I need this fabric in my life!" I ordered the fabric that same day and the rest is history......Well not really because I did not make myself a blazer, I made one for Mori. For those of you who are following me, you will know who that is and for those of you who are new to That Black Chic, Mori is my daughter, the face of That Black Chic.

The Blazer was made as part of my first ever Sew-A-Long, which was documented here on the blog. That was nerve-racking but lots of fun as well. The blazer was super easy and this was the second time I used this pattern. This is a project that can be completed in two days time or if you want to add a glass of wine to the mix, it can take as long you want it to take.The high-waisted pants and the short-shorts were self drafted pieces and those shoes are from a recently posted DIY. If you're ever interested in a sew-along let me know, leave me a comment and I may be able to make it happen!

      Right!! That's what happened to me, I bought this print not knowing what to do with it and then I created a blazer sew-a-long and decided to use it. I didn't think people would like it because it was so loud....but this is my most liked pic on IG.

    Awesome fabric and pattern! It's too bad that the Michael Levine store and loft in LA have closed :(
