DIY BLAZER INSPIRATION

Since its launch in October, the Ezra Coat Pattern has become one of our best-selling patterns. The pattern dates back to 2012 and was developed with a handful of other outwear styles. At the time, only a coat version for Ezra existed—the “companion” blazer in the group was a different pattern. When we decided to make Ezra open source, our team created three other length variations: cropped jacket, jacket, and blazer.

A blazer is an extremely versatile piece and one that many might argue everyone should own. Wear it with jeans to dress them up or layer with a dress for a polished look. Today we share DIY blazer inspiration to help you visualize what a finished piece could look like. From classic reverse appliqué to the addition of vintage buttons for an eclectic look, you choose your style.

Please note the blazer style pictured in this post is not the same pattern as Ezra and is simply imaged to be used as inspiration.

      Thank you for your comment, Iana. The layer you mention is made using the Alabama Fur technique on our Navy jersey with Peacock embroidery floss.
