Chanel No 2. Phew.

McCalls 5007 wasn't too hard to make up. The fabric was a Pitt Trading remnant and this is a toile, so it's kind of an orphan at this stage.

I like the retro styling and the fabric has it's own interest so I've used a plain black zipper as the enclosure. The lining is dark blue and there are no shoulder pads. The sleeves are 3/4 length. Angie added long darts on the back of the jacket for a more fitted look. I'll taper in the front seams once I have something to team this with.

Nicely done. What are you planning to wear it with?

Wonderful, now the wardrobe to go with it. Looking forward to seeing it on you and how the collar sits.

I have no idea on the wardrobe but I do have a few pieces in navy that could act as a base. My sewing room is a mess of fabrics to add to this new jacket. Decisions decisions.
