The blazer design stands out with the shawl collar.
Typically a shawl collar on a blazer is only for formal tuxedos, so this is an interesting twist on a formal-only element mixed with more casual details like the patch pockets and elbow patches.
Due to the casual design, I chose a black denim. It's actually a stretch denim I've previously used for baby jeggings, but worked.
I wanted it to act as a light jacket, so I lined it with flannel.
I sewed a size 6 with the sleeves size 7 length.
I like to try to add length for room to grow. My son's mainly just growing up at this stage, so I'll be able to lengthen the sleeves when they get Frankenstein-ish.
The dog is Grandma's along with the terrain.
We took the photos on her land, they call these sagebrush fields out in the desert "grease woods".
