For one of my classes, we had to make an outfit inspired by 1920s Chanel using only knit fabrics. My outfit consists of a wool jersey dress and hand (well machine zig zagged) mesh stripes and a wool double knit shawl collar vest. Unfortunately, you can’t see the single welt pockets on the vest in the photo. It was really fun to make! The pictures were taken by my friend Estela :)

Material Notes

100% wool jersey, 100% wool double knit

      Thanks! I wish there were more too! We were sitting pretty far from the stage and this is the best photo my friend snapped.
