This pattern was the one that started it all, back when I made the Toddler Blazer. I have to say, I was surprised when it began to sell in larger numbers, surprised when I got requests for larger sizes, and surprised at how much I’ve learned since making this pattern. So, the Basic Blazer honors the Toddler Blazer while vastly improving upon it.
In this newer version, welt pockets are included, I redrafted the shoulders and lapel for a better fit, and re-graded the pattern so the varying sizes are truer. This now goes up to a size 8, where before I stopped at size 4T.
And inspired by the versions of this blazer I’ve seen in blogland, I tried some much funkier fabrics this time around than I did in my first versions, even playing with a contrasting lapel and collar.
