We received photos of a beautiful blazer from a very nice lady. She made this blazer following Claire Shaeffer's Custom Collection for Vogue, number 8333.
It is a piece of art!
You will find more photos about the blazer in this blog.
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.
The sewing pattern V8333 is not a sewing pattern for a classic Chanel jacket, but a tailor-made jacket. It is almost a personal workshop/study to learn many couture sewing techniques.
