Home made box jacket

I got sewing again a few weeks ago. The Chanel inspired jacket is back and my pattern is a piece of cake to make. This pattern has no buttons, no lining, no collars, no pockets, no inter-facings or bondings, no nothing extra.

The fun lies in choosing interesting fabrics and trims. The key to this jacket is to make it in a firm fabric. I like an upholstery or bull denim type weight. And voila! A new jacket.

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.
