Vogue V8333 in red Suede
Vogue V8333 is a Claire Shaeffer sewing pattern published by Vogue. We know Claire Shaeffer from the books: The Couture Cardigan Jacket, Making Designers Trims and The Couture Skirt. She describes in her books how Coco Chanel designed her famous Chanel jacket, the faux wrap skirt and other classics.

Budget Chanel-style jacket!
Authentic couture Chanel jackets are priceless. This is not surprising because they are exclusively tailor-made for the rich and famous.

But we have managed to make a 'BUDGET Chanel-style jacket' for inspiration!
