Once again, I had the pleasure of testing a PDF sewing pattern for Amelie Clothing. This time, a Reversible Blazer. I've got a thing for reversible items- bags, clothes, etc- so of course this pattern was right up my alley!

Here is a basic description of the Reversible Blazer PDF sewing pattern:
-Ruffle at the bottom
-No buttons (did you hear me- NO buttons/button holes to do- yayay!)
-Comes in sizes 2-7

Like all of Amelie Clothing's patterns, the Reversible Blazer is written in clear, concise words. The pictures that accompany the tutorial are well-lit and aid in the understanding of the written word. I don't know if it's the fact that I'm getting quicker, or the fact that this Reversible Blazer is a quick sew, but I was able to get this one done in less than three hours (total- because seriously, what mom has three uninterrupted hours to devote to any one task???! ;-). I love the loosely gathered ruffle at the bottom- it adds a touch of femininity to the blazer. Even a beginner sewer could accomplish this blazer with good results- a real confidence booster!

The funny thing about this pattern actually has nothing to do with the pattern. On the day that I sewed this it was 90 degrees outside. Hot. Humid. Sticky. Lil' Miss was a trooper to model the blazer- though lightweight- in the hot temps. outside! No worries, though, I'm sure I'll be making more of these come cooler temperature here in the Carolinas. The fabric combinations are endless and I can't wait to embellish with buttons and ribbons and ric-rac.

Thank you, Susan, for allowing me to test the Reversible Blazer for you. Another winner of a pattern!
