Finally, I got back to the Morris Blazer and made myself another one. The first one was a
textured knit in blue/cream combination
This fabric is Mood Fabrics' Brown and Jade ponte which is really nice. Mood has several other stripe pontes and all the colorways are pretty.
I went down a size in the blazer this time, I like the fit much better. Last time I mentioned I was going to taper the sleeves and I did just that this time. Much better for pushing up the sleeves.
Pushing up the sleeves I will need to do, I still didn't get them long enough. On a positive note, I am very pleased with my stripe matching on this blazer. I drew all the lines like the Grainline Studio plaid matching tutorial on the front, sleeves and the front facing. What an easy way to get such great results, that is for sure.
