Sew Happy #1-A Tale of 2 Channel Inspired Jacket(s)

Welcome to  the first Sunday installment of Sew Happy. If you follow this blog on any sort of regular basis I bet you won’t be one bit surprised that I am starting off my first sewing spotlight on  a Chanel “inspired” sewing project that I made not once but twice.

Chanel Jackets are versatile and timeless but the price point is just a bit out of my budget at the moment. I wear my  Chanel inspired jackets with jeans (usually in a dark black or deep blue) pair it with a tee or sweater underneath and opt for a pair of pumps or ankle boots to complete my look. I live in LA where the dress code leans toward “upscale casual ” ( I know that can sound confusing..) but a  jacket  paired with well fitted jeans and pumps or ankle boots seem to be a perfect formula for looking pulled together without trying to hard. It’s a great “go to combo” to wear for a casual business meeting,  date night, or a lunch with your girlfriends.

My fail safe pattern without question is Vogue 7975 . It fits beautifully (with a tad of tailoring) and offers a multitude of design options.

My first attempt at a Chanel Inspired Jacket was made with a simple black and white fleck wool.
