The Auburn Blazer is a blazer made for curves. If you have a full bust, you might have felt like you’re missing out on this wardrobe staple, but we’re here with the perfect pattern and loads of inspiration!
A blazer can be a versatile accessory or a statement piece of its own. It’s all about how you wear it, and for us sewists, it’s about the fabrics and prints we choose—and we get to choose!
Looking for some mileage? Choose a solid color (like classic black) and your blazer will go from office to evening, no problem. Want to knock the socks off your colleagues at your next conference? Try a bold print on the classic blazer silhouette and you’re sure to leave an impression!
And if you’re looking for fabric and notions, we have you covered with full Auburn Blazer Kits in 6 colors, plus notions kits and Melton wool by the quarter-yard.
