this chanel-inspired costume has been made, using for the jacket a pattern from Kwiksew 3258 and a vintage 1980 burda pattern for the skirt 7215. the costume is made in a wool-silk boucle and the lining is silk. i used a vintage pure wool trimming in off-white and matching vintage patterns.
i loved doing this project, as the pattern have been both easy to follow and the result has been better, than i expected. as soon as i can, i will add pix with the lady, i have done it for……
color-mix with red, cream, orange, pink in wool-silk boucle
rose-green changeant silk for the lining
offwhite trimming and buttons (both vintage)
