We have selected sewing patterns for reviews. These sewing patterns are all suitable for making the Chanel-style jacket. Our reviews are based on actual testing, ie: cutting, sewing, wearing the results. If you click on a sewing pattern and no new page appears: it is work in progress!
Most sewingpatterns are available at SewingPatternsShop or Naaipatronen.nl.
But some sewingpatterns are not for sale (anymore) or are even real collector's items, which we will mention in the blogs and reviews.
Buying a handy sewing machine is now a good plan! The worst thing in this bizarre time is that we don't know how long our #staythome will be necessary to stop the virus Corona. We look at the situation from day to day and hope that we can all go out again soon.
Enjoy spring, family at home and try to enjoy the ordinary things in life.
In the sewing world, there is a lot of anticipation that many people will now have time for their hobby. The fabric shops come with nice offers, the sewing magazines have interesting blogs and even patterns of mouth masks come along.
Many reasons to start sewing!
It might be an idea to finally make a decision and buy a sewing machine or maybe one more.
Take a look at our reviews!
Toyota TSEW2 Ergonomic (EN)We are happy to test the Toyota TSEW2 and came to the conclusion that this is an ideal machine for, for example, taking it to a sewingworkshops (if it continues in limited groups, or private lessons) or to sit outside. Table on the terrace or balcony, and enjoy the fresh air and creative sewing.
Making an Easter dress, sewing mouth masks or making summer clothes ... Very good things to stay positive in difficult times. This lightweight sewingmachine is just part of this. Especially as a beginner, it will be a great sewing machine and as a medium advanced seamstress you can have just as much fun with it.

The Chanel booklet is a treasure. Written by; Isabel Sánchez Vegara and illustrated by Ana Albero. It summarizes her life in a nutshell and has an eye for detail and her unique style.
"Gabrielle was different. While the other girls played, she liked to sew with a needle and thread"
We read and see how Coco Gabrielle Chanel built her empire through her unusual and renewed style. She created outfits for women that were stylish but above all gave the woman more freedom to move. The hats were practical and minimalistic, and the corsets were banned. Coco designed clothes for the modern woman who was not standing still in life but on the move, perhaps working (this was very unusual at the time). Her choice of colors, minimalist style and specific accessories such as the famous Chanel 2.55 handbag are still very popular and expensive 'must-haves'
