Wow: most uttered word in the studio over the past two months, bar none. We have been so utterly bowled over by the incredible sewing we’ve been seeing from those participating in the Blazer of Glory challenge, and every day brought a new image of a blazer in progress that knocked our socks off. I was honestly quite nervous about releasing a more advanced pattern like our Jasika Blazer but I was so reassured to discover how many of you are keen to take on a new challenge. I’m not sure how we could get more ambitious after this but at least I know if we do, folks will be down to clown.
This week we picked our winner for our challenge. It was a very tough decision since there were so many incredible entries, but we couldn’t stop swooning over this gorgeous blue blazer from @becky_califronia. The fit, fabric and finishing is flawless and we felt it deserved our grand prize: a custom dress from Beatrice Forms! Congrats Becky!
But of course we can’t stop there. There were so so many beautiful jackets and as we all know, this challenge was not a destination, it was a JOURNEY! There are a couple of people that we saw throughout this challenge bringing so much encouragement, support and photos. Beck here, in her Closet Case yellow Jasika won our hearts early on and we so appreciated her process photos and beautiful sewing. So gorgeous.
Another super trooper was the lovely Blanca. Every time we went to comment on a #blazerofglory picture she had already been there, with a like, a kind word, or helpful suggestion. Thank you Blanca!
So many gorgeous blazers made over the course of this challenge… I think we could officially start a Blazer Army.
Thank you so much to everyone who participated! You made this one of the most fun patterns we’ve ever launched, and seeing how you put your own creative spin on such a classic design really blew our minds. We love you. Hard.
