“Fashion changes, but style endures.” Coco Chanel
And, there is nothing more stylish than the classic Chanel boucle tweed jacket. Unfortunately for most of us adding this Chanel classic to our wardrobes is a little beyond our price range, so what’s a girl to do – make your own, of course!
Following the Sew Over It London Coco pattern we will create a stylish, flattering, ever-wearable and guaranteed to never go out of style jacket. Perfect for in-between seasons, the Coco Jacket will add that little bit of chic elegance to your look.
A simple cropped jacket you will learn to sew a fully lined jacket with princess seams, insert a two-piece sleeve, and the option to add braiding. We will of course help you with all of the other techniques and processes involved in making your beautiful Coco Jacket.
Sew Over It London have sized this pattern 8-20. Size 8 is bust 33 inches & waist 26 inches. Size 20 is bust 45 inches & waist 38 inches. Please see this size chat in the photo gallery and contact us before booking if your measurements fall outside of this.
We will provide you with your own copy of the Sew Over It London Coco pattern, which is yours to keep and make again and again. We also provide all of the kit you need from sewing machines to pins we have everything ready and waiting for you in out brilliant studio. We also provide any interfacing and thread you need so all you need to worry about if finding the perfect fabric.
Who is this class for? This is an adult improver dressmaking class. That means it’s not ideal as your first dressmaking class, or for complete beginners. You will need to be able to use a sewing machine and follow a seam allowance. Ideally you will have completed some beginner dressmaking projects such as our Sew a Simple range of classes. This class is for over 16s only. If you are in any doubt if this class is for you please drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will take a half an hour break for lunch, please bring a packed lunch.
This is not really enough time to pop to the shops to buy something, so please bring your lunch with you so that we can ensure you have enough time to complete all of the projects.
We have a fridge you can store your lunch in and a microwave should you need. We will provide tea, coffee and biscuits.
PLEASE NOTE: After booking this class you will be sent two emails. This first will confirm your booking and the second will contain important information such as where to find us and the fabric requirements for the class. If you do not receive these please check your junk mail.
