Black or White?: Grainline Studio Morris Blazer


I’m having a blast sewing up my first indie pattern that I had to buy after seeing Hila’s version in mustard ponte!

So far, it has been smooth sailing and the striped double knit feels fantastic on (best fabric purchase ever??).

Unfortunately, I have to put it aside to study for a final tomorrow, so meanwhile… I need some help!

Black (top) or striped (bottom right) shawl collar??

  1. The striped collar would make the blazer look like a vest from afar; I think black makes it more coherent and sophisticated, and the contrast would bring out the shape a bit more. Just my opinion though. Good luck for finals, I’m amazed how you can sew the day before an exam, so organised!

    1. Thanks sil! I was really leaning towards white at first, but the bit about the blazer looking like a vest made me reconsider, and I’m glad because the black is growing on me. Haha, I wasn’t sewing the day before the exam, I was sewing over the weekend and just posted it the day before.

      1. The night before i had exams were the times I procrastinated the most, haha! Hope you did well in the finals, now you have more time to sew, yay! Looking forward to your finished blazer whatever your collar choice is ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. That’s true! The plus side of blazers, you can wear them when it’s chilly outside but also when it’s hot outside but cold inside. Looking forward to seeing your version ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. I love the combination of black and white. I’ve seen a few of these blazers around and I’m getting envious. I’m going to have to get this pattern!!

  3. Ugh. I like both. The black to tie in the sleeves and the stripe because i love stripes. I have to go with….. Black

  4. I like both but I think the black just gives it the edge. This is a great pattern – I really liked Hila’s version too and I think I must give it a go.
