Bags, wax coats, Cosplay costumes, infinite recycling, horse hair fabric and Dirndl dresses. It is all on this website. Because, most of you will recognize it; once you're married to your sewing machine and devoted to making things yourself, nothing is impossible to make yourself. Well... almost nothing.
But now back to basics. Well.... you can't exactly call the Chanel-Style jacket basic.
We continue with the excellent video series from Elena Tran of Baudekin Studio. This time about making buttonholes and buttons yourself.
This second video of Baudekin Studio is about the front of the Chanel-Style jacket. How to quilt and tape the front? It is a delicate job and characterize the Chanel-jacket.
Elena Tran shows us how we can do it ourselves. The video is great and even beginners will understand the perfect instructions.
Let's start the best sewing-projects of all!

Occasion wear sounds a bit old fashioned, but it certainly isn't. Occasion jackets, pants, dresses and skirts are clothes which have a little bit more (luxury) appearance, making them suitable for festive occasions. Think of weddings, the holidays, birthdays, galas or dinners.
With Easter just around the corner, this jacket is ideal to make and wear. After all, Easter is often a bit unpredictable in terms of weather. It should be feeling like spring, nice and warm, but it can also be cold. A jacket, to wear over a dress or blouse, is a clever idea. After all, you can also take it off and hang it over your shoulders. Let this jacket also be special in terms of finish and lining... however you wear it: it will look timeless and classy.
What's in the name? Cardigan or Jacket or Cardigan Jacket? Are we talking about a cardigan, a jacket or a cardigan jacket ?
Everybody wants a Chanel jacket, or to make an Inspired Chanel jacket. Or cardigan? In the world of the Haute Couture, the Fashion or the DIY- world, we all know 'the Chanel Jacket'.

Down jackets, coats, bags and scarves are the winter-fashion must-haves. You'll see them everywhere during this winter and they're going to be a classics. Simply because they are so warm and comfortable to wear. And for us hobby seamstresses there is an additional advantage: they are easy to make yourself.

THE CHANEL STYLE is very recognizable, but it is less defined as well. Previously, the association with the "Chanel" brand was mainly a a perfect picture and an identical style. Nowadays the style is less conservative and sleek. The basic elements are still present, but there is much more interpretation for individual interpretation.
