The Fulton Sweater Blazer was an obvious indie sewing pattern hit as soon as it was released last year. It’s a comfortable knit blazer, with an unconventional collar design. For a busy mom, it’s the perfect wearable piece to stay and comfortable with style!
It’s been months since I spent the time to make something nice for myself. This pattern is not for beginners. I spent several hours working on this project. It is a well-written pattern, but I really appreciated the additional videos for attaching the collar. It’s not difficult, but it is a little bit tedious. Worth it though, because it looks amazing!
I used this Pixel Dot Black Ponte Knit from Style Maker Fabrics. It’s very high-quality and much easier to sew than other cheaper
I chose the 3/4 sleeves and the shorter length version. The blazer can also be made with long sleeves and a knee length hem. I’m wearing it here with a Wiksten Tank I made several years ago. This is still one of my most worn handmade items ever!
I cut a size 6, based on my bust measurement. The fit above the waist is great. Since the blazer is long, I think I should have graded out on the back hips. I typically need more space in the backside. The jacket isn’t meant to close, but the front opening edges don’t stay vertically straight on me.
I’d love to see some more pocket options! The patch pockets look cute in photos, but I don’t find them very useable for everyday items. I may try adding a welt pocket or side seam pocket in another version. Though I like the black one I made, I also realized navy blue would have been a better choice for my wardrobe. As always, I’d love to make another. The question is when I will eventually get around to it 😂
