Embroidered Tweedjacket

Added Jun 15, 2017


Hesse, Germany






I saw a Chanel jacket in 2010 and put a picture on my wish list. But for a long time I wasn’t in the mood to sew something like this, especially because of so much applications.
But now in 2017 I decided to kick off this project, as I got very nice cotton tweed (from Linton England) and linen for this jacket. I found a Burda pattern in issue 11/2005 for this asymmetric cut. It was easy to sew and I like the fit. I made a 1 button closure only in waist height (press button) and that’s enough. The edges are made of linen and I sewed also a matching linen dress of this material.
Most of the work was making the embellishment: I crocheted lots of flowers with linen yarn and made applications of pompoms (they are cut off from pompom Yarn).

If you would like to read more about my sewing jacket, I would be happy about your visit at myblog House of Philo

    Great jacket, I can see a lot od work and dedication! Isn’t it fun to browse old (and new) Burda magazines to find the exact pattern to make our wish a reality?

      Hi Elpida, thank you, what a honor to have a fan in Greece. It’s so cool also because you live in Athens and I in Kassel. We have something in common currently – documenta 14! Are you interested in arts? I am! Bye Philo

      Of course I’m interested in arts and I had planned to visit Documenta 14 (the main exhibition) last weekend and post some photos but I didn’t make it….Next weekend I’ll be in Berlin!
