Champs Elysee Cross Back Blazer for Women size XS-XXL
*This is a PDF DIGITAL DOWNLOAD for a pattern, not an actual garment*
This pattern is a blazer designed with princess seams and the option of a gathered sleeve or straight sleeve. You also have the option of short, 3/4 length, or long sleeves - so it is perfect for all seasons. All of the internal seams are finished with bias tape for a professional finish that adds a great pop when the jacket is opened.
The Cross Back Blazer can dress up or down easily so that it works perfectly at the office or on the playground. The cross back allows for ease of movement and a relaxed fit yet it still has a tailored finish that will convince anyone that it came from a high end store.
Fabric: Wool, tweed, linen, chambray, twill, jean, and other bottom weights - you can also use woven materials with stretch (1-2% spandex/lycra) things like stretch satin or stretch twill. Consider the weight and drape of your fabric as you make your selection. Lighter fabrics are great for spring and summer, and denim, satin and wool are great for fall & winter. Pick a fabric with some drape, this will flatter your figure - a stiff fabric will end up looking boxy.
2-2.5 yards of Fabric + 12 yards of 3/8 inch double fold bias tape (you can use 1/2 inch, it will just be slightly bigger than your seam allowance.)
Notions: Thread, button(optional), light weight interfacing.
