I'm a little excited because I have been sewing for Vincent again and there is seriously nothing that I enjoy sewing more than stuff for him. Sorry Edison, but them's the facts!
I sewed up the size 5 for Vincent, even though he is a 4. It's not blazer weather here at all. Well it is, sort of. It's BLAZING hot. Errr, I've made that joke twice now and I still find it amusing! Anyway, I didn't want to make Vincent a beautiful blazer he wouldn't get much wear out of this season, and as you can imagine my kids' wardrobes are crammed full of handmade clothes (and awesome hand-me-downs in Eddie's case!). So I am sewing a season ahead! I always think it's something I should do, but now I am actually doing it! This lovely blazer is now put away in Vincent's Winter Clothes box, and I'm really excited to fill it up with handmade things!
I made this blazer up in a suiting fabric I bought at the op-shop about a year ago, for $3. I have about 2 metres left of it too, so I am planning on some pants to match! The hood is black fleece, to make it kind of look like he is wearing a hoodie under his blazer. I lined the jacket with black poplin, but the back lining is scraps of black batman fabric. Also the sleeves are black and white striped because I was running out of plain black.
Come play tourist and check out the other stops on the tour!
PS. Can you believe Vincent is FIVE this year, and is starting school in just 2 weeks?
