Quick questions:

Is it hard to sew a blazer?

Yes. Sewing a blazer often involves tailoring techniques suited to intermediate and advanced-level sewists with previous garment sewing experience. For example, sewing welt pockets and creating collars and vents. Blazers often involve fitting techniques, too, which can be tricky. An advanced beginner should start with a simple-style blazer pattern, such as the Heather Blazer by Friday Pattern Co. before moving onto something more involved. 

What fabric is best to use for a blazer?

Blazers are typically sewn from medium weight woven fabrics with some structure such as gaberdine, cotton blends, tweed, twill or wool. Blazers usually have a lot of shape to them, so using a fabric with structure will help emphasise this. More casual-style blazers can be sewn from linen, crepe, or stable knits like ponte. 

Does a blazer need a lining?

Blazers do not need to be lined, they can be finished with bias binding or another seam finishing method. If your blazer is unlined, it’s wise to consider how the outer fabric will feel against the skin when worn and whether it will ‘stick’ to what you’re wearing underneath. 

What lining fabric is best to use for a blazer?

Slippery fabrics work best for blazer linings. For example, polyester blends, viscose, rayon or silk. The blazer’s lining helps the jacket slide on and off easily over whatever you are wearing underneath and feels nicer against the skin than the harsh fabrics sometimes used for the outer part of the jacket such as wool or tweed. 

How much fabric is needed for a blazer?

Depending on the size and style of the blazer, approximately 2-5 yards.

What length should a blazer be?

Traditional blazers are hemmed to mid-hip length. However, more ‘fashionable’ lengths may be worn, such as cropped to the natural waist or oversized to finish mid-thigh.
