Cropped blazer with corset details


A trendy blazer perfect for spring has some seam lines that refer to underwear and cup/corset construction.

You can create these details by using plain topstitching or sewing some ribbons or tapes to the front piece of the jacket. The pattern is quick to draft, but sewing can be a bit challenging!

Start from a basic block with ease and without darts. You'll also need a basic sleeve.

Step 1

First, trace a copy of front and back and draw waist darts on them.

Draw the new hemline 5 to 8cm below waistline, then draw the new side seam tapering it a bit at waist.

Raise shoulder point by 1 to 2cm, then extend shoulder lines by 3 to 5cm for a slightly dropped shoulder.

Draw the classic collar as shown here.

Step 2

Separate collar from front.

On back, reduce waist dart and shape center by 1 to 2cm at waist, blending to zero at neckline.

Step 3

Draw the bottom part of a circle on front whose center is upper dart apex and radius is half of bust distance minus 2cm.

Redraw the outer part of the circle opening it by 1,5 to 2,5cm at top to mimic an underwire shape.
