I was so excited to be picked as part of My Little Plumcakes Canaan’s Incredible Blazer Pattern for Pattern Revolution. I really love promoting anything boy, even though this pattern works great for both genders. Visit Pattern Revolution to enter to win the pattern!
Because I can’t make a pattern like I’m supposed to, I did just a little bit of pattern altering on the front!

I moved the front opening to the side and switched the buttons for a zipper. I love the asymmetrical look of it. I only sewed on one patch pocket, but kept the front curved hem along with everything else. Henry seems to pick it over his other coats, and he can take it of all by himself which he LOVES.

I made the 2T length and 18 mos width for Henry. It’s still a little big for him, but it doesn’t drowned him like other patterns I’ve used. It’ll be great for growing and will probably be his go to jacket until the summer. The instructions were very well written and easy to follower. I love that all the style lines are the same as a men’s suit jacket. The hood and shoulder tabs are the perfect touch for dressing it down.

I chose to make it out of black sweatshirt fabric because I wanted it to be a play on casual and very comfortable for Henry to wear. I lined it with moose print jersey knit for whimsy and comfort.

This is also Henry’s look for PR&P Week 1: Winter Wonderland. My inspiration was warmth without losing any movement. The sweatshirt fabric makes it boy worthy but warm and the moose print is perfect for winter. I used Henry’s moose leggings from Christmas because they matched perfectly and went well with the theme. The leggings are somewhat warm, really comfortable, and perfect for wearing under snowpants or other warm pants.
