- For the jacket body: medium to heavyweight suitings or lightweight coatings with surface texture such as wool melton, wool flannel, crepe and tweed. Velvet, medium-heavy weight cotton, seersucker and linen may also be used. Please note: tightly woven, smooth surfaced suitings like wool gabardine are not recommended since they can be difficult to fuse using an iron.
- For the lining: rayon bemberg, charmeuse, crepe de chine, silky cottons like voile
- For the pockets: sturdy cotton like shirting, quilting cotton or muslin (1/4 yd / 0.25 m)

At last! A blazer pattern that is a good basic jacket - no flounces, pleats or uneven hems. This is a great pattern to make over and over again. I have already made a muslin and have two pieces of wool ready to be made up.
My jacket worked up beautifully! I’m going to sew another one. Thanks!
I’ve always wanted to learn how to sew a tailored jacket. This pattern was so easy to follow and I specifically chose closet core because I love how easy their instructions are to follow. I’d highly recommend using this pattern if you want to make your first tailored jacket! It’s a well designed jacket and I love how mine turned out!
Clear, detailed instructions. Picked up some useful techniques. I did have to adjust the body and sleeve length quite a bit as I am only 5’2”. ( there are no adjustment lines on the pattern - these would be helpful). The fabric I chose was a washed linen with a liberty tana lawn lining. I omitted the pockets because I didn’t want them to distort the blazer front however I did make the welts so it looks like there are pockets.
I also ran a satin binding between the lining and facing. I will definitely make this pattern again.
I’ve made a number of blazers and jackets for work, and this pattern is very well designed and professional, with very detailed instructions. I highly recommend getting the associated notions kit.
