Inspired by the classic Chanel boucle tweed jacket, this little number would be a welcome newcomer in any wardrobe. Perfect for spring, Coco adds that little bit of chic to your outfit. In this class you will learn how to fully line your Coco and if you like you will get the chance to hand-trim the edges with a Chanel-style braiding – which is usually the selvedge!
This class is aimed at those of you with some dressmaking experience. Although the jacket isn’t too difficult to make it requires accurate sewing. You will be expected to have made a few other dressmaking projects but no previous jacket making is required.
You will leave with your completed jacket and a pattern which has been altered to fit you.
Cake and tea will be provided to help the sewing process along!

Class length: Three 3 hour sessions
Materials required: 1.5m of tweed and 1.5m of lining. We will use the selvedge of your tweed as braiding but if you would prefer something else then you will need approx. 3m.
We have the perfect fabric for this available on our online fabric shop.
Pattern sizes: 8-20. If you are outside or may be bordering on this range of sizes, please contact us a week before the class as we will need to grade a pattern especially for you. If it is just one size up or down, we will do this free of charge, but if it is more then there may be a small fee.
