Sunny and Bright – McCall’s 6172 Blazer

It took me longer than I anticipated (doesn’t everything), but I got it done!

I have wanted a bright yellow blazer for a couple of years but never got around to making it until now. I’m so glad I did because I really like it. 

This is a pattern I’ve used before. It’s pretty easy to put this together, although there are a lot of pieces (as with most lined blazers). But, the process is pretty straight-forward. I also like how this pattern gives easy to follow instructions on how to do welt pockets. 


I’m wearing this with a dress I made last year M2401 here. Now that it’s finally gotten warm and the snow has melted, I’m looking forward to more Spring/Summer sewing. 

*sorry for the slightly blurry pictures. I think I didn’t have the setting on the camera quite right.

  1. Love this color and the cut is very smart looking! Did you have to use any special tailoring techniques like sleeve heads, horesehair, etc.? I must admit that the idea of making a tailored jacket is so daunting. Bravo to you!
