Separates should always be something you have in your wardrobe! This easy blazer can be styled a million different ways in a crisp suiting or sateen; or you can try a fabric with a stunning drape for a more relaxed look. Check out this free sewing template and tell us which direction you’ll be taking your project in!
Fabrics & materials used:
- 2 yards Italian Black Heavy Stretch Cotton Sateen
- 2 yards Black and White Circle Printed on a Crepe de Chine
Please be aware, this is a template only! At the size shown, with a 1/2″ seam allowance, the template will fit a 33″ bust, 26″ waist. Whether you are resizing or not, I always recommend creating a muslin to fit prior to starting your final project.

To start, stitch each of the pattern pieces labeled #4 together. These then attach to the back yoke (#1) to form the back of the blazer.
Take pattern piece #2 and notch it where you see the small red line between the purple and green lines below. This will allow you to match the corresponding purple and green dotted lines on #1. The sides of pieces #2 and #4 are then matched at the orange lines.
The lining goes together nearly the same way, except pieces #5 and #3 go together to form a shape similar to #2. Piece #5 will be your lapel facing, so you may want to interface it if the fabric you’re using needs a little stabilizing, but this is optional.
Here you can add the sleeves and attach the lining, matching right sides together and sewing around the perimeter of the jacket. Before closing the bottom of the sleeves, pull the jacket right side out and press.
To finish the sleeves, you can serge or zig-zag stitch the ends (or slip-stitch the lining and outer fabric), and roll or fold your sleeve to the desired length.
Personally, I love the versatility of a jacket like this. With such a cute lining, how could you not make a pair of matching pants or shorts? Plus, you could easily pair the jacket with other basics to create a more office-ready look.
The shorts were a self drafted pattern, but if anyone is looking to make them, Salme Sewing Patterns has a very similar pattern on their site!
