A very nice modern, youthful Chanel-Style jacket!
Burda Easy 2019/1 is a special edition of the Burda. It is a magazine specially designed for the beginners. It has fewer patterns than the normal Burda, but the patterns are simpler and there is more text and utilization The radar sheets are also super 'easy'.
In this magazine: A Chanel-Style jacket! Let's start to sew!
Burda EASY 2019/1
Burda Easy 2019/1, is a half-long jacket. It can be used both indoors and outdoors. The recommended fabrics are: Wool, Bouclé, Tweed fabrics, garbadine and jeans. You will need buttons, lining and interfacing as well. You can buy the fringes but make them yourself, the same fabric is of course more beautiful and has more Chanel style!
The sewing level is Easy, which makes sense because the entire magazine is especially for beginners. However, we would like to point out that it is not that easy to sew with Bouclé fabric, especially if you are doing this for the first time.

We used this sewing pattern to create the same jacket with the same fabric. We quilted the lining as in Claire Schaeffer's "Couture cardigan jacket" book. It makes the jacket comfortable and very luxurious.
Our result: a nice 'young looking' jacket to wear casual and especially (summer) outdoors.
The Chanel jacket in the Burda EASY 2019/1 is a very fun, modern and youthful jacket. It is nice and wide and super casual. However, it is not comfortable because the upper sleeves are very narrow. If you can get it adjusted, you will have the best sewing pattern for a super nice Chanel-style jacket!
