BWOF 10/2005 #116 with alterations.
This coat was made as a part of the Chanel jacket sew along
The alterations included narrowing the coat in the waist area and narrowing the sleeves. Also I removed a bit of the sleeve head’s ease. I made shoulder princess seams on front and back and made a mandarin collar. Also, I removed the button closure overlap of the central front panels. The coat’s length was cropped a bit as well.
I didn’t quilt the lining to the fashion fabric, as the original Chanel technique indicates, but I used the Bagging a lining technique for applying the lining. The lining includes the back pleat for more comfort.
The coat doesn’t have a button closure – the front panels do not overlap. Instead, 6 metal frogs are sewed to the facing of the coat and well hidden when looked from the outside.
Some synthetic fabric for the shell
Silk satin for the lining
