Chanel and That Jacket
Claire Shaeffer / Claire Shaeffer
One of the most creative and fascinating couturiers in the twentieth century, Coco Chanel created a look that is still popular today. This 2-day Master Class will focus on Chanel’s iconic jacket and the Chanel-isms which make it distinctive: the fabrics, quilting, unique double buttonhole, decorative trims, chain weight, and 3-piece sleeve. Students will complete a variety of samples, decorative trim, and 3-piece sleeve.
I am so geeked. I was able to register for this class at the American Sewing Expo before it sold out. Claire Shaeffer is a nationally known expert (in some circles) whose expertise is in the tailoring of Chanel jackets.
