Facts and Fiction Behind Chanel's Iconic Tweed Fabric
You may love, or hate, or be totally indifferent about Mademoiselle Coco Chanel. However, you cannot deny that she had good taste. She was an opportunist and a shrewd business woman. She was a woman who understood the power of mystery and the importance of discretion. She reinvented her past to elevate herself to the highest ranks of society.
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.
