If there is something that I truly enjoyed during my fashion studies is learning about sewing, designing and arts. Like I said in previous posts, clothes I would design and make from scratch myself is something I really wanted to show on the blog. And the title says it all, today’s post will be about this handmade tweed blazer! I actually haven’t made the patterns myself for this woolen jacket as my sewing mannequin just gave up on me (And I’m still waiting for the new one to arrive!). I found them in a mountain of patterns I collected over the years, and added some tweaks to it, just so it would fit the style I wanted the blazer to have.

What was the most exciting when working on this blazer, was actually the ironing part! It may sounds weird, but I love working with wool and how steam is able to give the shape you really want by working with the right tools and skills. Also, I haven’t with such a good quality of fabric for such a long, which added to the excitment, I believe…

Now that I added another blazer to huge collection, it’s time to style it. I really wanted to add some London edge to it. Hence why, this pair of velvet trousers was the perfect match to me and gave that quirky style I was looking for. While the mix of patterns and textures are far from clashing, there was not need to be heavy-handed about the choice of accessories. As usual, black accessories are my favourite, one of my favourite bag and some chelsea boots were my picks for this outfit.

What’s your thoughts on this handmade tweed blazer?

    It’s beautiful! I really love the fabric–it has great texture and depth. And the shoulders of the jacket look very well-supported, which is so important. =)

      It’s true! It’s the most important, this is we, as buyers, see if the blazer is well tailored or not 🙂

    Wow Aria, how amazing that you are wearing your own creation. I like the pattern on the fabric and its the perfect length, which for me sometimes its hard to find.

    WOW I can’t believe you made that blazer!! That is so incredible and you’re so talented! I really love the simple elegance of this look. Tweed can really mature a look but you made it look so trendy and youthful :]

    J’ai finalement le temps de passer par ici et te dire bravo pour ton blazer ! Il est magnifique ! Le blog est une super idée pour faire connaître ton travail en tant que designer.

    Connais-tu le blog Girl a la mode ? http://www.girlalamode.co.uk/
    Il a été créé par une jeune créatrice anglaise qui s’appelle Charlie May. Il me semble avoir lu sur ta page de présentation que tu désirais créer ta propre marque, je trouve que son blog est un excellent exemple de comment se servir de cette plateforme pour montrer ton travail. Après tout dépend comment tu veux te développer mais c’est un bon début.

    Je te souhaite une bonne soirée,
    Emmanuelle

      Merci beaucoup Emmanuelle! Je connais le travail de Charlie May mais je ne savais pas qu’elle avait un blog 🙂 Merci beaucoup pour ton conseil et la découverte de ce blog!

      Passe une bonne soirée toi aussi!
