Fashion Friday: A Bolder Blazer in Bouclé

01 Mar

The nubby weave of bouclé fabric elevates a classic double-breasted blazer to another dimension. Coco Chanel may have made bouclé famous with her timeless suits, but it’s the slim-cut jeans, swing top and stacked heel booties that make my cropped jacket perfect for a casual dinner out with the girls.

About Fashion Friday: Inspired by a 2011 Bike to Work Day challenge sponsored by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, this series highlights the broad range of “dress for the destination” bicycling fashions.

      The jacket is very well-made too. I really should have posted a photo with the lining

      BTW, I visited your site and love the D2N tops. That design works particularly well with my curvy figure.

      My four sisters and I all learned to sew from my mother growing up. I don’t do it much, but the knowledge of clothing construction is invaluable. It also means that I know all kinds of fabric and clothing design names that I wouldn’t otherwise.

      My sister Lucy does the most sewing and teaches fabric arts, particularly doll making. You may enjoy her site at http://playfulstitching.wordpress.com. Another sewing site I love is http://tinlizzieridesagain.wordpress.com She integrates reflective trims in her clothing for nighttime visibility on the bike.
