Grainline Studio Morris Blazer : Contains graphic images of Mustard Ponte SMUGness!

Hello everyone!

Wohoo! I finished my mustard ponte blazer, had a fun energetic photo shoot with the little people and this is what I have to show for it!

But before I spill the beans here are some construction deets – I finished making this in less than a day. The only issue I had was that I used normal lightweight interfacing. It shrunk the ponte ever so slightly – enough to cause some drag lines. Still its come out alright! And can I just say it looks great on just about everything I have thrown it on hehe.

I don’t have much else to say about this except to show you loads of pictures which may convey just how much I love this blazer! Proceed at your own peril!

Have you seen the amazing versions that are popping up of this awesome pattern?  SewBusyLizzy made a linen blazer with a navy trim (must make one like this) and Sha_Bozz has been posting on IG this gorgeous floral ponte she is making (must make a floral one too)

; Suzy at suzybeesews has made a colour blocked one (must make colour blocked one ) I mean wow!! I am constantly awed and impressed by how incredibly creative and talented the sewing community is! Thinking about the sewing community and knowing that I am a part of it makes me feel good about myself 😉

Happy sewing! I will be back soon with my April Burda challenge.!

  1. You are busting out projects left and right – I love it! I am also a fan of mustard and wish I could wear a whole outfit in the color, but it really washes me out. I DO have some mustard ponte in my stash that I was saving to make a cardigan, but this is giving me ideas for a blazer.

    Love the action shots!

    1. Thanks! I doubt I could carry a whole mustard outfit either though I love the colour! This ponte had been in my stash for ages and i was just too precious about it. Sparks flew when these came together 😁. Love it when my fabric hoarding tendencies are vindicated😒.

  2. Love it Hila. I also use mustard as a neutrals, must be something about where it lies in the colour spectrum, or something… Looks great on you and the action shots were enjoyable to flick through too. A great piece for MMMay 🙂

    1. Thanks Theresa! We were luckey with the weather this Sunday. With 5 little people about there is always loads of action😁. My husband is taking his role more seriously since I promoted him to blog manager – he even got his aviators out of his car to “complete the look” 😄

    1. Thank you for your lovely compliment! Its not often I get styling right😃. I think you will be surprised at how quickly this sews up – this was my second and I didnt refer to instructions so it was faster.

    1. Thanks Clarinda! Got the blog manager idea from SewDeputy😁. I wish I stuck to a proper plan! Right now I have a Granville shirt cut out and a pussy bow blouse and a couple of skirts.


    1. Thanks Birgitte! The mustard really worked well with this blazer😃. I am glad I hung on to the mustard ponte waiting for the right inspiration💃💃


    1. Hey Jen! Welcome and thank you for stopping by😃. I wear this blazer with almost everything! Its versatile and easy to make up. Grainlin studio have sewalong as well.


  4. A Mustard blazer had been in my list for a while, and I love how it looks. I made the Morris Blazer in olive twill with leather sleeves and I love it! it is very easy to sew and very stylish. Now I’ll have to make one in mustard 🙂


  5. Hello! I’m about to make the Morris blazer myself. I love your version! I’m debating between size 2 and 4. You said in your muslin version you cut a size 4. But your ponte looks much slimmer in the sleeves than the linen. Was just curious if you altered the sleeves, or went down a size? Or if that’s just the fabric that’s making it looks different? Thanks so much! Your blog is wonderful!
