The pattern for this blazer is available for purchase HERE
I finished altering the pattern I made from this blazer to make a blazer Tater’s size.
I used some old stretch twill-ish fabric that had faded badly when I washed it (that’s what I get for buying Wal-mart clearance fabric) and the last of the nap mat fabric for the lining to make this one, in case I totally messed up. But it turned out really cute, I think.
I’m working on turning this into a PDF pattern for purchase and I need sample sewers to help me refine it. It will be in sizes 18 months, 2T, 3T and 4T, so if you have 1) a little guy (or gal!) who needs a blazer, 2) a blog, and 3) a camera that takes decent photos, either leave a comment (with your e-mail) or e-mail me (mellysews at gmail dot com) to let me know you’re interested in being a sample sewer for me. I’ll send you a free pattern and eternal gratitude.

This is soooo cool. I have a 4 and 2 year old and this would be perfect.
I’ll like to invite you to share this at my FIRST EVER linky party 🙂 @ http://www.jaqsstudio.com/2011/10/jaqs-studio-first-ever-linky-party.html
Love that. Its so cute. Hope to see more.
Found you on We did it Wednesday.
Ohmygosh! SO cute!! I have a daughter that would love a blazer (I also have friends with boys who live nearby and would look darling in blazers and that I would sew a blazer for). I also have a blog and a decent camera. 🙂 emmillee(AT)gmail(dot)com
I would love to be a sample sewer for this beautiful blazer! Even though I have little girl (2,5 years old). Could be very cute to sew a little sporty blazer for her and combine it with a girly skirt. I have a camera and a blog, too 🙂
Hope it is ok with you, that I live in Germany. I’m sure my readers would like to know about such a nice blazer!
Hi there- found you through the hop and am a new follower. The jacket and your son are adorable! He’s a natural in front of the camera! I hope you have time to follow my life in South Africa by http://withoutcomplexities.blogspot.com
I hope you are having a great week!

Lovely blazer, and very cute little boy! My Kinderboy is a 4T, and I’d love to trial the pattern for you, but it could take me a little bit to get to it!
Love it..soo handsome.. What an awesome blog,,Im officially following ya with smiles.. Found ya on linky and had to stop in.. So much creativity dwells here.. Im Marilyn via http://theartsygirlconnection.blogspot.com ..Hope you can stop in sometime..TY ..
Very cute! I like the faded fabric for the blazer. I would love to test sew for you if you are still needing someone. My son is a 4t but I could also get a model for an 18 mo or 2t size. You can check out my sewing on my blog or my flickr. (flickr http://m.flickr.com/#/photos/[email protected]/5838061018/ I hope that worked. I am on my phone. Otherwise my name on flickr is perfection not included .)
If you added a cute cuff and shorter sleeves it would be darling for a girl. Just match the sleeve cuff to the cute girly lining and a girl could easily wear that. How about a 3/4 sleeve? I don’t have any little ones, but love your sewing.
I have a cute model 18m: my son, good DSRL camera and a sewing blog. Love to try your pattern. taraembendesigns(a)yahoo(dot)com
Awesome jacket. I’d love to test your pattern. My little boy wears 18Month size.I think I could help making the instructions easier to understand for non-english-speakers like me 🙂
I’ve tested patterns before for “Dear my kids”, “Little Lizard king” and “I think sew”.

Oh! I forgot! I could also test in a girly version for a size 5T for my daughter. I think that using the right fabric could make a very nice girly blazier, no need to make more changes to the pattern.
this is soo cute, and so is your little fella i might add 🙂
check out my blog and see if i’m suiable to test out your pattern 🙂 i’d love another follower, i will follow you too.
I would love to sample a pattern. I have an adorable three year old and a husband that takes amazing pictures (win/win right!). Hilabeans522(at)hotmail(dot)com
I’d love to test this out, but my little guy is only 4 months old.
I’d love to sew this for my 18 month-sized 1 year old. I have a lot of sewing experience especially with boys clothing- have sewn lots of button down shirts!
I have the model, camera, and blog too!
