Handmade New Look 6231 Blazer in Cotton/Spandex

Ok, let me start out with this: I love blazers. Love them. When The Tin Thimble received New Look #6231, I was so excited! I purchased a lovely cotton/spandex blend that has a satin finish, with just a touch of sheen. This blue blazer was a New Look pattern home-run. 

The pleated peplum has such a nice shape to it, and was pretty fun to sew. 

It's a beautiful dark blue, and those seams in the back are sooo flattering. 

There are a lot of seams on the inside of this jacket (all those seams = excellent fit), and so to add a bit of punch, I finished each one with a bright orange bias tape. 

Other notes: Jeans by Lucky, T-shirt from American Eagle, vintage bracelet, boots by Franco Sarto. 

Blazers are a staple for my wardrobe. I think they're great for the office, adorable over dresses for dates & parties, they can dress up any old t-shirt and flats. Do you have a go-to garment too?


  1. I love it! The bias tape finish is just PERFECT!
