is there a morris in there somewhere?

Slo-o-o-wly I’ve been working on adjusting the pattern for my first Grainline Morris blazer to go with my stretchy denim midi skirt (you might remember the pockets here)

From measuring off a favourite RTW jacket I’ve used a size 10 shoulder, tapering out to a 14 around the armhole.

Does that sound weird? Would you do it another way?? Suggestions gratefully accepted!

I measured for a FBA and keep coming up with a 2” difference, which doesn’t require it, so haven’t tried one.

My saving grace is extra fabric. If I can remember to use basting stitches and something needs to be re-cut, I should be able to do it easily.

If life will just leave me alone long enough to finish tracing these pattern pieces . . .

  1. I haven’t got accustomed to ice, that’s for sure. Agree that if your mum’s tiny, best she stay out of winds! How were her/your pancakes (is that what they’re called?)

  2. Oh yes, that cold wind can be brutal. And my mom is so tiny, I’m sure it could knock her over. But the ice, that is killer, does one ever get accustomed to it? Not me! 😮
