New Look 6853


After a day and a half of constant hand sewing, it is finished!! I was going to take it slow, but Mitch is taking me out on the town tonight, and I wanted to wear my jacket. So here it is!!From the front - The fit is fine. There is a little bit of overlap at CF, which I don't need. Otherwise it is good.
Side - I am really wishing that I had just gone for the two piece sleeve. This one isn't as sleek as I'd like, but it was easy to match the plaids!
Back - The fit in the back is absolutely perfect. Can you tell there is a seam at CB? Mad skills...
Here is a close up of the trim, before it was sewn on.And, of course, what is a Chanel jacket without a chain? I got mine at Home Depot - Sh! Don't tell!

  3. LOVE IT!!! You did an amazing job mathing the plaids. nice touch with the red lining as well. Just curious what your trim looks like? Ugh on the handwork. However, I am beginning to SLOWLY enjoy it...can't wait for the next project...

  5. Mad skills, indeed. This is totally cool! I am very jealous (I can't wear Chanel-style jackets at all) and this is very pretty. Although I can see that you might want the sleeves to be a bit slimmer, they look really good. You can just go with the two-piece sleeve on your next hand-sewn, custom-fit, all-around-couture jacket. You'll be starting on that next week, right?

    I hope you had a great night on the town!

  7. I love the trim...For Tori's christmas dress I bought something similar for trim. I'm going all out this year now that she's walking, I can have the "nice" fabric hehehe. Her dress will be solid and her jacket will be the same fabric that I'm using for my niece's dress....can't wait to get started!!!
