Bellatrix blazer by LRW

My 1st Bellatrix blazer completed…

I’ve never really been much for blogging. I repeatedly say I’ll do it, but it doesn’t happen:-/

However, with my clothes-making passion reignited after a six-year hiatus, I feel compelled to write about my projects. This is largely due to being inspired by several ‘sewist’ bloggers around the globe.

Yes, to some extent it is about showing off, but it’s also to share my challenges, fixes and anything else I think might interest or inspire readers who sew. I think this is particularly important when using a bought pattern.

So, my first sewing post is about one of my summer ‘makes’: the Bellatrix Blazer by Papercut Patterns.

  1. Love the fabric, isn’t it great how soft furnishings fabrics work so well in jackets!? Great choice of lining too, looking forward to seeing more!

    • Thank you! Yes, that’s two of these I’ve made with soft furnishing fabrics (inadvertently). I’d love to make a duster coat, too, in a heavier weight furnishing fabric… I have a pattern I think will work well:-)
