Making boxy jackets

In the picture is another version of this easy to make jacket from the last post. It’s a take on a Chanel jacket which is bang on trend right now. Made in tweed type fabric, with a trim at the neck and on the sleeves it will be tres Chanel. I did three rows of top stitching to give the neck and sleeves a bit more something.

The bead necklaces are from a second hand clothing shop. And the brooch is inherited. It is from Scotland and the stone is a Cairngorm. At first I didn’t believe such a stone existed but it is from the Scottish highlands.

The Greenie Galleries at the top of this page have 100s of photos of older and newer projects showing multiple ways to make your own clothing and accessories. There are also ideas to recycle or upcycle.

See you soon.
