Paper patterns are here!

Y’all – do you see that? It’s my Basic Blazer on one big piece of paper! (Make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom for a giveaway!)

And it comes with a pretty printed booklet.

A large scale printout and a booklet! How cool are these?

Ok, sorry if I’m getting geeked up about this – but seriously you guys – this makes me feel more like a real designer than anything I’ve done so far.

If you have to get your hands on one of these (and I hope you do feel that way!) they are for sale for $12.95 + shipping here.

Some looks I’ve made with this pattern:

    My little man would look so cute in one! I would love to sew a cool one for him and maybe add ruffles for one for his sister, b/c she’ll be jealous. hrobbins422 at

    I already have one dapper little man who loves to dress up, so I’d for certain make a couple for him…and he has a little brother on the way, so I’m sure this pattern would get LOTS of use!

    I’d make this for my son, who at 4yo is wearing my black blazer around the house pretending he’s Bruce Wayne. He’d look so cute in a blazer fit for his size. leilabreton[at]gmail[dot]com

    My youngest son is 5 and LOVES wearing blazers….says they make him look like a “Spy” :) He’s nearly outgrown his current one, so this would be perfect for me to make for him! Thanks for the chance! hopefulthreads (at) yahoo (dot) com

    Oooh congratulations that’s so exciting! I already own the blazer pattern but just wanted to lend my congrats. :)

    I would make it for my son B, I drafted a pattern for A’s blazer but haven’t had the energy to size up the pattern for his twin – an actual real pattern would save me so much time!!! Then they could have easter blazers and be oh so dapper!

    I would love to make this for my 5 year old. I have been eyeing your patterns for months & love them. It is so hard to find him a blazer that not only fits but isn’t going to fall apart after wearing it a couple of times! Thanks for the opportunity.
