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
Flirty dresses, a cropped cami, and glam trousers for modern flappers.
