All Love Notions Sewing Patterns are digital downloads, you may print them at home or send to a copy shop. A physical pattern will not be mailed to you.
The Metra Blazer is a simple blazer meant for stable knit fabrics. Included in the pattern are two collar options; choose either the simple shawl collar or go with the modern wide lapel collar. You’ll love the construction that gives it such a nice, clean finish. No garment is complete without pockets and this blazer is no exception. The in-seam welt style pockets are simple to construct but look high-end. Also included with the pattern is a full bust option. Ladies sizes XS -5X with optional Full Bust pieces for both views.

Very versatile pattern. Can be used for any age, from professional to casual. A blazer can elevate any look, from pants to shorts, you cannot go wrong with this one.

I fell in love with the Metra when I saw it before it was released. As a newer sewist, I was nervous about sewing it. It sewed up easier than I thought it would. It’s a great pattern that I plan to sew again!

This blazer turned out beautiful with the excellent instructions. The many pictures from testers were also helpful in picturing fabric possibilities.

I was a little nervous about making this, but I watched the tutorial and carefully followed the instructions. I was so happy with the way it turned out, a friend asked me where I got it !

This was fun to make. The little tricks for the pocket and the burrito collar make you feel like a professional sewist.

Love love love this one. I made a black version to wear to work. Got many compliments. I dress it down with jeans as well. Super nice. Great pattern and good instructions!

I saw one of the owners of my favorite quilting shop wearing this and fell in love! They were going to have a class on it, but I could not wait and purchased the fabric in the store and the pattern online right away. Love this blazer! It is comfortable and beautiful. I struggled a little with the collar at the shoulder but after watching the video, aced it! The video was so helpful! I looks gorgeous, I want to try making another and adjust the length for a different look. Very versatile.

I love this pattern. It came together so beautifully and those pockets are magic! I can’t wait to make more.

I had never made a jacket/blazer before making this pattern and I was able to complete the whole process within a few hours. My Metra blazer came out so well. Love Notions provides such great patterns with easy to follow instructions. What I really love about Love Notions is the links to video instructions at all the tricky spots.

I had never made a blazer before this one either, but loved the workshop where I made mine. And then I was able to use the burrito roll method that I learned on yet another Love Notions pattern!

I have now made three versions of this pattern! One in a knit faux leather. One in ponte knit. One in French terry. I love them all. The comfort of knit cardigan with the style and cut of a classic little jacket. This is one beautiful pattern.

I am a beginner. I took the course when i purchased the blazer. The Metra is the 4th garment I have ever sewn and the very first Love Notions pattern I ever made. The class was a huge benefit. It was a great class with excellent guidance. I love how my Metra Blazer turned out, it was so much fun to make and I love wearing it. Since it was my first LN make, I just went with the 3X to see how that would fit me, and its perfect. I could have graded back and forth between a few, but I went with that, and I think it fits perfect. I have gotten many compliments on it. I shared my photo in the LN FB group.

I love this jacket. It can be fairly casual or fairly dressy. MASSIVE pockets. Easy to sew. Super comfortable but polished.

I purchased the Metra so I could make this blazer for my daughter. I totally love it and so did she! Awesome pattern. I even told the owner of Pins and Needles in Cleveland that she should check out your company for patterns that are simple enough that a beginner would be able to make them.

I am a beginner. The Metra Blazer is the 4th garment I ever sewed and my first Love Notions pattern. I took the class and it was excellent. I really enjoyed learning and making this blazer and i love wearing it. I get lots of compliments. Because it was my first time making a LN pattern, i just went for the 3X w/FBA and did not make any other adjustments and I think the fit is perfect.
Deneane Keane (verified owner) –
I never imagined I would be able to sew something like a blazer! This is a great pattern with easy to follow instructions (like all LN patterns) and the result is a garment that I love and I’m always secretly hoping people will ask me about it so I can say I made it!
Joen Venitsky (verified owner) –
The Metra Blazer is the perfect topper. I took the on line workshop and it was fun to sew along with other ladies and learning great sewing tips. Can’t wait to make my next Metra.
Stacey Gambetti (verified owner) –
I have made this Metra Blazer twice already and have 2 more planned ready to cut out. It looks much more complicated than it was. Such an easy yet stylish pattern, Thanks LN 🙂
Julianna (verified owner) –
I love this pattern! I’ve made two so far and will certainly make more. You can dress it up for the office, or throw it on over jeans and a tee and look instantly polished.

I didn’t think that I could make a jacket because I’m just getting back into sewing after a long time away from it. Even back when I was sewing frequently – back in the day – I wouldn’t have tackled a garment like this one. However, it was surprisingly easy to make and turned out really well. I love the pockets. A jacket, even a looser and unstructured jacket, makes anything I wear it with look like I took the time to ‘get dressed’.

Very cute and easy to see!

I have made two of these. Usually the construction of blazers is not easy and I am amazed at the final results!! Love notions patterns are made for beginners to confident sewists and the final results are awesome.

I felt such a sense of accomplishment making the Metra Blazer. Thank you for making a simple pattern that would magically help me actually sew a comfortable and versatile blazer to wear over just about anything! Thanks also for including instructional videos. The pockets and collar is awesome and the fit amazing.
The written instructions are incomplete for the collar & conflict with the YouTube video, which must be watched in order to get the complete set of instructions. I found this to be very frustrating and confusing. I felt the shoulder construction with pivoting method was poorly designed & difficult to do with knits. Would not recommend for a beginner.

I could not love this pattern more. I’ve worn it to a first date, an important client meeting and a fun night out with my sisters. It’s perfect!

The Metra blazer is fantastic! I started with one in a ponte, then one in liverpool, and most recently one in a delightful scuba knit and they all fit perfectly!

I did the online workshop for this Blazer & can’t believe how beautiful it came out as a new garment maker! Thank you for such a well drafted pattern & a super helpful workshop!

It’s by far the most professional jacket in my wardrobe! And it was easy to sew with the instructions too!
Gaby20ster (verified owner) –
If you want to make a blazer and not die in the attempt go for this one!! Also I love the burrito method applied!! It took me few hours and I consider myself confident beginner! Their instructions are great and the sew along so much helpful!

Love the blazer, It is really cute. Uses a sueded knit fabric that is beautiful. However had a great deal of difficulty with the neck edge of collar. Looks like the markings are not correct. Also when clipped, the little opening showed on the outside. Blazer has turned out really nice , but did have difficulty. and made it work.

The Metra blazer has come into it’s own during the last few weeks now the weather is changing. It is great for layering over a T shirt for a smart casual look. I made mine from Scuba. Once you get your head around the pockets it is a relatively easy make. I watched a few Lovenotions/ambassador videos first. My only schoolgirl error was to to scald it with a hot iron, so had to add a design feature around the front side hems. I’m just waiting for some material to make another one or two.

I had this forever before I actually made it because I was intimidated by it. Once I finally made it, I was so impressed! The directions were fabulous and walked me right through making an amazing blazer

I have made 2 Metra blazers and both are comfortable and very stylish. The instructions for sewing them are great and I can’t wait to make another.

This is a great pattern that results in a stylish and versatile blazer that can work with a casual or dressy outfit. I used a faux suede fabric that has less structure than recommended and it was fine. Next up will be one in Ponte which is one of the recommended fabrics. Only drawback IMO is that cutting layout is not included.
Deborah Corbett (verified owner) –
I love the construction of this blazer. I had been looking for the pocket pattern piece, only to find the piece is part of the actual collar piece. Such a fabulous creation. I have two wool blankets about to become Metra coats.

I was a bit intimidated to try this pattern but now I have made my first one and will definately make more. I shortened the body because I am short waisted. Great pattern and the instructions are so good!
Gaby20ster (verified owner) –
This is my favorite go to! It’s perfect for work interviews, but I even made one to dress up for casual meetings out of a leather -like fabric and it makes you look completely different. It is not complicated at all to make (I own 4 and gave away one) and the fit is flawless.

I just made this Metra Blazer, and it came out fabulous!! First and foremost — easiest sleeves to set in EVER!! There have been remarks about difficulty with the collar. I had not problem at all because I watched Karina from Lifting pins and needles, and I bought the class from LN. The class from LN was well worth the cost of admission, if for no other reason to see the burrito method with the collar. I ended up sewing in the collar in the three layers, and had no issues. I have a gorgeous white Ponte I just bought to make another one. This will be a staple in my sewing wardrobe. Great quality, and I highly recommend buying the class as well.

I absolutely love this pattern. I made a wearable muslin using a blush ponte from Cali Fabrics I struggled a bit with the pocket area but watched Tammi’s video and I got it, I had not sewn too many things for myself because the sizes on the patterns in the stores are so crazy, but Love Notions are spot on. I made the Tessa dress in the same fabric and every time I wear it I get lots of compliments even though this blush is not even in my color palette!!

This pattern quickly has become a TNT for me. I’ve made it three times in the last couple of months – it helps me wear layers at work but I’m more styled than a cardigan. It’s a great pattern and the instructions are excellent at walking you through the tricky parts!

The Metra blazer Is such a good pattern. Can be both elegant and casual. Can be easily hacked. I learned a lot following the excellent instructions. Thank you, Tami.
