Structured blazer dress


A statement blazer that can be used as a dress and will make your outfit memorable, plus a challenging pattern that creates a side volume.

You can sew it in any suiting fabric reinforcing side panels, front, collar and facing with intelining to stiffen the fabric and add body to it. The types of interlining can be different amoung sections, for example you can have organza or plain fusible interlining in front, collar and lapel and crinoline or tundra in side panels.

Step 1

To draft the pattern, start from a basic block with darts and 10cm ease at bust circumference.

Shape center back by taking in 1,5 or 2cm at waist, blending to zero at shoulder blades level and balancing the amount by reducing back waist dart.

Draw the slash lines for side panel 7 to 9cm away from side seam at hip line, to side seam a couple cm below waistline.

Step 2

Draw the curved princess cut ending at neckline and in side panels slash lines.

Redraw bottom part of waist darts curved as the slash lines.

Step 3

Add a 2cm button stand past center front, then find 1st button position 3 to 10cm above waistline and draw the roll line.
