I got the chance to test another new Love Notions Pattern, the Metra Blazer. Designed for stable knits, it’s a casual jacket that works with all kinds of outfits. I made the wide lapel version but it also comes with a shawl collar version to give a completely different look. It also has deceptively simple welt pockets to give it a clean, professional look.
I made mine from a dreamy bamboo French Terry from Blackbird Fabrics and I love it SO much. I can tell this one is going to get a lot of wear this spring. Since I really like to plan capsule wardrobes, I came up with several ways to wear the Metra using basics that I already own.
The Metra Blazer comes in sizes XS-5X with an optional full bust option, two collar options, clear instructions, and even videos to help with the tricky parts. I can’t wait to dream up even more ideas for this pink Metra blazer and I’m already planning my next one!
