I thought I was done with Henry’s fall/winter collection, but sneaking in at the end I made Henry a dapper holiday outfit since I chosen to be part of Pattern Anthology’s Winter Wonderland collection. Along with his great outfit, I made a masculine infinity scarf with leather details.

I love how the leather makes the scarf so easy to finish, dresses it up, and makes it masculine looking. It looks so great with his fair isle blazer!

Now let’s talk about the pattern collection and the blazer I made. I was only able to make one pattern, the Berkshire Blazer designed by Melissa from Blank Slate Patterns.

As I was looking around for inspiration, I came across these fair isle jackets. Aren’t they amazing!? I just had to make Henry a fair isle jacket. The only problem, where was I going to find fair isle fabric?

After talking to Melissa and doing a lot of thinking, I decided to find a fair isle sweater and interface it well enough to turn it into a woven fabric. I searched thrift stores until I found the perfect sweater. I didn’t want it to be too busy, and it needed to be huge to have enough fabric to work with. Luckily, I found one that was perfect.

Let’s talk about the Berkshire Blazer pattern. Basically, it’s amazing. I love that it’s a blazer for thicker fabrics. I mean, I used a thick sweater, and it still looks good! I think it’s warm enough for Henry to wear as a dressy coat. This is the first pattern I’ve sewn of Melissa’s, and she’s great at explaining the construction. I did have to play with the fit a little bit, but that’s because Henry is extremely tiny for his age. I would recommend using fabric recommended in the pattern if you have never put a jacket together to make it easier on yourself. I have made and altered many, many jackets, so I knew I could work with difficult fabric.I would definitely recommend this blazer to anyone wanting to make a nice jacket!

I made the jeans using Titchy Thread’s Small Fry Skinny Jeans, and I made the bow tie using Delia’s crocheted bow tie tutorial.

I even finished the jacket in time for Henry to wear it to a friend’s wedding last weekend. He got to stay up extra late but seemed to enjoy wearing his dapper jacket! The jacket and bow tie will be his dressy outfit for the holidays.

  13. Capital A Adorable!!! Cute, cute, cute!

    This is so clever…the blazer made from a sweater. What weight interfacing did you use? I love the scarf too. I've got lots of bits of ultrasuede and faux leather from the bags I've made. Can't wait to try this.

  14. I love the blazer from a sweater refashion…so cool!

    Posted on November 14, 2013 at 3:39 am
  15. I love the blazer! I always look to you (or Henry's wardrobe) for refashioning inspiration. I have been holding out on buying the pattern pack, absorbing all the inspiration. After seeing this look, I just purchased the pack and cannot wait to carve out some time to get started.
    Thank you!!!
