A new header for the updated website... That's our wish. But how do we manage it? Creating a header for a website or blog is not as easy as it seems. But after a long time of thinking we suddenly had a great idea.
What is Sewing Chanel-Style?
The purpose of our website and blog is to provide information about do-it-yourself couture. Specifically: jackets and couture in Chanel style. Information in general: testing and discussing suitable sewing patterns, discussing couture techniques, reviewing books, testing sewing machines and sewing products and providing as much information possible. But how do you visualize it in a header of a website which is very restricted in terms of sizes.
All the elements together in one picture!
We bring our jackets, a pile of books, a clothes hanger with beautiful fringes, sewing measures, tapes and a lot of tweed fabrics. Heading to the Studio where the photographer Erik Bolding from Fashionworkz has already built a setting. And after a few hours of work, the setting is ready.
The lady and her sewing machine!
Unfortunately, the sewing machines, the lock machine and even the overlocker-machine are not ion board. They were allowed to stay at home. But the other elements are there: the books, the sewing patterns, the self-made Chanel-Style jackets and lots of fabric, fringes and bindings which will become eventually our Chanel-Style jackets.
Never underestimate a woman with a sewing machine!
Our theme. Because we 'just' make couture ourselves. And we help you by informing you about everything you want to know. But the photographer should also not be underestimated. I would say: "Never underestimate a photographer with a camera", because a photo is more than a picture. This photo gets the place of honor as a header above the website. We hope that the message is 'captured' in the photo.
And now ley's get back to work, we got work to do!
Our Sewing Chanel Community website is getting a new garment. A new blog. Ánd due to popular demand we have decided to write about new products as well on Sewing Chanel-Style and bring you the latest news, best buys and even more news.
Also a Dutch Blog
The blog is written in English. For most Dutch people English is their second language but not their mother-language. Pardon our English, when it is not correct.
We are still looking for English guest-writers and bloggers; so send us an email if you are looking forward to contribute to this website.
Our blog will aim to inform you about new reviews; sewing patterns, couture-books, our 'Chanel'-projects and a whole new category: Products-reviews.
We will inform you also about new products which are the best tools and friends for a seamstress. What do you need to sew (without frustrations) and which products are such a wonderfull 'things' you definitely need?
As we are sewing for years; we know what it takes to get a project done. Without certain products and tools it is almost impossible to create the real Chanel-Style couture. Sewing machines, lock-machines, a mannequin, good light and an organized sewing-studio: you probably own a lot of equipment already. But what to do when it needs to be replaced or you just need something better? We will inform you thoroughly with experience and information attached.
Now let's get to work!
Let us inform you with in-depth information. Be inspired and start sewing!
We wish you all the luck with your new sewing-project and meanwhile in the sewing-studio, we will work our butts off to keep you going!
We are a non-profit sewing-community. We are sharing information, sewing pattern-reviews, book-reviews and lots of sewing guides for sewing-beginners and advanced seamstress.
