Alexander McQueen jacket styled like Chanel

There are so many great ideas and you only have two hands and a limited time for sewing. How to pick an item to sew, a style to follow and a designer to copy? Sometimes the best solution is being practical and combining…

That’s exactly what I did with this jacket. I used a shape and structure of an Alexander McQueen jacked and styled it like Chanel.

The jacket is vaguely based on the infamous Nora dress pattern and the military jacket I made years ago.

      Thanks Mary Athey. I have another jacket made of same fabric, but in black-gray colors. They are both really nice and of good quality.
