'The Classic Guide to Sewing the Perfect Jacket' is a great book if you are interested in sewing the perfect blazer. We talked about it before: Vogue V8333 is a great sewing pattern and study by Claire Shaeffer.
But Why would you want to sew a perfect jacket? Isn't it a bit outdated concept? No it is not. More and more classic clothing items are getting a complete revival. Mainly because we love the classics because of the concept of 'sustainability' It is the complete opposite of buying mass clothes as cheap as possible.
If you have a great shaped tailor-made jacket, you might wear it for years!
Let's read the book with a lot of information about tailoring the perfect jacket!
