Spring Peplum Blazer and High Waisted Shorts

Spring has sprung all up in my style taste buds for sure because I’m all about floral prints. Please bear with me as I go through this phase. :D I wanted to make something for spring that was versatile, that can be worn in many different ways and so I decided to make a blazer and short set. For example, I total plan on wearing this as a set, or just wearing the blazer with some jeans, or wearing the blazer to work with some dress slacks, or just wearing the shorts with a crop top or t-shirt! The options are endless!

I got this awesome fabric from Mood Fabrics!

For the blazer I used the same pattern that I used here but made the following alterations:

  • Shorten the sleeves to have 3/4 length and added faux leather cuffs
  • Switched the look of the collar, adding 2″ to the width of the two front pieces
  • Added a faux leather trim to neckline
  • Added a lining the the inside of the jacket
  • Added a zipper

To make the shorts I:

  • Used a pair of shorts that I already had as a pattern
  • Added a high waist band
  • I also added the faux leather strips to the side for a tuxedo look to them
  • Zipper in the back.
