Grainline Morris Blazer in Houndstooth Ponte

All three versions of Grainline Morris Blazer are on regular rotation in my work wardrobe for nine months of the year.  They make great extra layers to throw on over a dress or blouse for an air conditioned office in spring and autumn and layered over merino for the cold winter months.  I love that in ponte they are like secret cardigans and they can be stuffed unceremoniously at the bottom of my work bag and be pulled out at the drop of the hat and look like they are freshly ironed.  They can be thrown in the washing machine regularly and look as fresh as the day I made them.  Adding to my collection then, was a no brainer.  Because my other three are solid colours, I really wanted a printed version and this remnant in red and black houndstooth was just large enough to eek this pattern out.  I did however have to add an extra panel on the bottom of each sleeve to get them long enough.

I was asked on Instagram how I get my front points so sharp?  I tend to cut the seam allowances right…
