Book: The Couture Cardigan Jacket, The Couture Cardigan Jacket
Sewing Secrets from a Chanel Collector
By: Claire B. Schaeffer

If you want to make a jacket with the impeccable look of Chanel, this is the book to have.

The Couture Cardigan Jacket presents sewing methods Claire Shaeffer developed, based on her knowledge of haute couture construction and meticulous research studying original Chanels. Via the DVD, Shaeffer instructs readers in essential techniques such as cutting and shaping the jacket sections, princess seaming, quilting, making the 3-piece sleeve and more.

Where there is a trick or shortcut for an operation (without lowering the quality) Shaeffer demonstrates it, along with a host of sewing methods discovered via careful and meticulous study of Chanel originals.

The package is a perfect mix of instruction and insight into the complex design-details that make a Chanel a Chanel.
