Stripes and Floral // Reversible Blazer


I've been sewing almost daily for myself and having so much fun. Trying out new patterns, sewing with new types of fabric, making mistakes, but just enjoying creating. 
I had the opportunity to test this soon-to-be released Reversible Blazer from Amelie Clothing (formerly Kikoi Patterns) and even though the weather is in the 100's, I couldn't say no. I mean how adorable is this?
I've had this striped fabric for a few years and I never knew what to use it for. And I picked up this red vintage floral at an estate sale. Turns out the stripes are just perfect paired with a floral for this blazer! I sewed a size 5 and I love the length of the arms. Plenty of length to cuff the sleeves and to grow. Oh, and those cute shorts? Those are the Clover Shorts pattern from Willow and Co. And they are amazing!
It came together pretty quick. And I was happy to sew something that didn't require button or a zipper. I've been doing a lot of those lately and this was so much easier. The fit is perfect, a size 5. She loves the floral and I love the stripes so we both win!

My husband and I are heading out to sunny Palm Springs this weekend to celebrate our 15 year anniversary! We are so excited to relax and enjoy time away. And maybe I can convince him to hit up a few thrift stores while we are there!

Have a great weekend!

April, thw blazer is amazing! Some impressive stripe matching :) Love the fact it is reversible and you both picked fabrics for the blazer.

Enjoy your trip!

Are the shorts the Clover shorts? I am still catching up on older posts... The Fawn Lily on the header is simply stunning!
