  • Chanel Style Jacket in Autumnal Shades

    January 28, 2013 by Britex Fabrics

    Paule from Alsacea emailed us photos of her latest couture creation, a semi-fitted, collarless Chanel style jacket made from Missoni knit fabric bought from the first floor of Britex Fabrics.  We love the hand-stitched detailing, and the way she accentuated the warm autumnal colors of the knit fabric with wine colored trim and toasty brown buttons.  Julie said, “One of my coup-de-coeur was this knit from Missoni. Thick and overdecorated, it was still fairly light in weight. I decided to use Vogue 8804 pattern, a tweed knit vest Chanel style from Claire Shaeffer. A lot of hand sewing went into this project.” Novelty wools are available in-store and online, and Vogue patterns are available on Britex Fabrics’ 3rd floor.
