Chanel catwalk Autumn/Winter 2023/2024
Et maintenant: The Chanel catwalk for Autumn/Winter 2023/2024. We LOVE it and it is VERY Chanel in all details and looks!
Watch and enjoy:
Chanel with a horse, or better Stella?
Last year, the fashion house CHANEL opened its fashion show with Charlotte Casiraghi, Prince Albert of Monaco's niece, riding her horse down the catwalk. Charlotte is a dressage rider and an ambassador for the fashion house. This playful action led to a lot of criticism because the animal welfare organizations said that a horse does not belong on the catwalk.
A few days ago, Stella McCarthy, fashion designer, vegan and animal lover par excellence, decided to do it completely differently. Horse-friendly and with a fashion message:
How to make BIG party dress
The dress on this picture is a combination of a bolero and a skirt which is 16 meters (17,49 yards!) wide! Why would you need a dress like that... Well it is party time, or time for an exclusive photoshoot.
But of course you can also make this skirt simpler, slightly less wide, so that it is nice to wear during a party, festival or event.
How to sew a Chanel-Style Denim blouse
How to sew a Chanel-Style Denim blouse. We have made a denim blouse and used a very nice and easy Mc Call's sewing pattern. The blouse is a classic and absolutely fantastic to wear. Last but not least: the blouse is ideal to combine with every style. Casual, classic, country-wear or business-look. Every style is possible.
How to make a Chanel-Style bag
The Chanel-style bag is very similar to the style icon of the Chanel bag 2.55. How can you make this bag yourself? It's less difficult than you think. The bag has the construction of a envelope bag and offers four compartments. The instructions are in the Dutch language but the photos are easy to follow.
As if on a village square, the stage is set for a show. Created by artist Xavier Veilhan, eleven monumental animals made of wood, cardboard and paper reveal models one-by-one.
Top hat, bow tie, white gloves, laced boots, satin cape, pleated skirt, double-breasted jacket or with tails, tuxedo shirt, sequins, short shorts, petticoats: it is in the poetry of majorettes that Virginie Viard draws the imagination of her Spring-Summer 2023 Haute Couture collection.
Letś continue the video-series of Elena Tran. The Chanel-Style Jacket is famous. Very famous. Therefore we publish a great series of Videos. Elena of Baudekin Studio is showing us step-by-step how we can make the famous jacket ourselves.
Let start: Part 5: The Patch Pockets
Diy chic Folding bag!
It is not difficult to make a folding bag. Read this blog and you can see how to make this folding bag and where to buy the fabric. And the sewing pattern of course!
Butterick B4929 is all about a very classy jacket. Model B, C and D even have a long split at the back. It is very BAROQUE and sophisticated. If you love a party, fantasy fair, carnival, LARP or Cosplay, you will love this jacket. And if you love to wear special eye-catchers, this jacket will be a head-turning item as well.
But it ain't easy to sew this classic jacket...
Luckely we have made a photo-tutorial published at BERNINA Blogs. It in the Dutch language but easy to follow because the pictures are loud and clear.
Specially made for the BERNINA blog as a gift. Open the 15th door of the advent calendar and you will be on the blog for this beauty.
Difficult to make it? Not at all. All you need is the embroidery patterns (we will show you the way), a frame, a piece of fiberfill and some ribbon.
A few hours later you will have a perfect gift for a Chanel-lover! And do not worry; the embroidery patterns are free or to buy at some of the biggest embroidery-websites on the Internet. It is copyright free as long as you do not start to sell it.
A FREE sewing pattern and a cheap corduroy stretch fabric. Yes, a great cheap, warm and must-have Corduroy Cargo pants! These pants are multi-functional, have a great fit and are ideal for the winter.
Is there a downside to mention: well, to be honest, it is not a pair of trousers to sew in one evening. If you have no sewing experience or little sewing experience, then it is a bit of a puzzle to put the zipper in properly.
But with the step-by-step tutorial on Budget fabrics, with no less than 50 photos, you will certainly get there!
Chanel goes Senegal
The new Chanel catwalk 2022/2023 took place in Dakar/Senegal. A location and collection that surprises me. Lots of denim,tiger prints and leather. Beautiful? Well, in my opinion the least beautiful collection so far.
And then the location? Do they really have to go on a plane to Senegal? What is this message to the world? Don't worry about CO2 emissions, we, couture-houses, will continue to 'fly in' all models/personnel/press to faraway places. In my opinion it's the moral duty of a trendsetter to set a sustainable example, as a message against waste, pollution and social inequality.
Anyway, the good news: The jackets remain classics and we also see beautiful green Bouclé fabrics. And the models represent a great diversity. Bravo!
What do you think of the new Chanel Couture collection? Judge yourself:
Long, cozy and super warm!
Speaking of warm clothes: how about a body warmer or vest that is very cheap and easy to make?
A vest which gives you a lot of freedom of movement, and which looks stylish and is very warm due to the quilted lining? Oh yes, and also: a free sewing pattern!
If something sounds too good to be true, then - on this website - it really is! A detailed description with photos make it a piece of cake for you to make this long vest/bodywarmer yourself.

Bags, wax coats, Cosplay costumes, infinite recycling, horse hair fabric and Dirndl dresses. It is all on this website.

DIY Hèrmes-Style bag!
This time we have made a Hèrmes-Style bag. It looks fabulous, glamorous and very big, and it is. It is a big bag and ideal for a weekend or city trip. You can make it yourself if you have sewing experience. It is not a project we recommend for beginners or seamstress with little experience, but maybe with some help, it isn't that difficult.
Let's sew the most Classic Bag of all times!
This Slimming Jacket really works!
This slimming jacket really works and makes you look a size less. This is mainly because of the shape and the lines of the jacket, which are piping-trims. But it is also because it is made of fabric which stretch.
And believe it or not: it is made of fabric leftovers!
This chic jacket is a really treasure. The piping, the model and the stretch fabric also ensure that this jacket looks 'slimming'.

Vogue 1663; a very nice cardigan
Vogue V1663 is a combination sewing pattern for cardigan, t-shirt and pants. It's homewear but a bit neater than normal sweatpants and a hoody. Depending on the choice of fabric, you could also easily wear the garments for other occasions such as leisure and work.
The sewing pattern does not look that simple at first glance because of the pleats in the back. But it's also suitable for beginners. If you choose the right fabric, it is a fine sewing pattern.
If you are sitting in your sewing studio and you are working on a wonderful garment, you simply cannot do without good lighting. Most seamstresses have their sewing machine on a table in front of the window. And they have a large extra lamp on the desk or a fluorescent tube above the sewing machine. Fortunately, the sewing machine itself also has a built-in light. You can hardly have enough light!
But how do we sew as economically as possible?
No one likes to think about it... but it can happen that you are suddenly admitted to the hospital. Or it is planned and you know that you will stay there for a few days or even longer. What kind of clothes do you bring?
The hospital's instructions advises: easy-fitting clothing, but that doesn't always mean that sweatpants and t-shirts are useful. These can also be warm and stuffy or difficult to put on and take off.
This blog is divided into three parts and appeared on Budgetsttoffen blog. With knowledge and experience, an 'outfit' has been put together that will be pleasant for a patient. Not only to wear, but also to feel comfortable when you get visitors or are allowed to walk around.
