Why did you choose this?
Can I use this fabric for a blazer?.
BEST ANSWER: I don't see why not. I will say, however, that it looks and feels more like "active wear" than something like ponte de roma, which more easily crosses the line between woven and knit fabrics when one makes a garment to wear over other garments. I also think that the scuba will act and look a bit more (for lack of a better word) "rubbery" than you might expect from a blazer, although I would not swear to that. It's just a thought. The color is divine! I would make a slim skirt, a cropped moto jacket or pants out of it before I'd think of a blazer. But that's just me. I wish you a lot of luck. Again, the color is out of this world and I bet you will look good in anything you make from it. By the way, if you haven't used it yet, scuba sews like a dream! - M. La Ban
