Inspiration

At the last Vogue Patterns sale at Joann's, I picked up V8781. Not sure why, I was just really attracted to the line drawing and thought it had some potential.

This pattern has some great individual basics for work! I really loved the jacket, which looks to be a LOT less complicated to sew than a set in sleeve blazer. Plus the princess seams will help minimize a waistline. I'd skip the shoulderpads unless you need them for fit.

After some internet window shopping I found a couple of great Raglan sleeve jackets.
Zippers on the arm seam!! Awesome.org
This has a raglan and a set in shoulder combo, but can easily be straight raglan.

Color blocking!!! This tuxedo really opened my eyes for the possibilites with this patterns. I have some ideas up my sleeve so I am adding this one to the queue for sure. (*this one appears to have the combo shoulder too)
