DIY – Chanel inspired oversize jacket



Oh-oh – I just returned back in the house right before it started raining today… wearing my cool and fancy Chanel inspired oversize jacket. I sewed it accordingly to a pattern of Burda style which I already used before for a winter jacket. The fabric is a kind of knit style and I bought it – once more – at Schumacher a few weeks ago. I also sewed a fitting blouse in this light blue silk – like the lining of the sleeves – but this needs to be washed at the moment….like always…

So this is why I choose this simple silk shirt from American vintage which – I found – looks also quite nice together. My trousers are from Blacky Dress, a label I sold in my shop making a kind of cool, avant-garde and very wearable cloths which I love as well. 3

To lift the look to a more feminine level I added my dark blue sling backs with a perfect and very comfortable heel height from WO Milano. Silver accessories – and ready to go 🙂2

Costs for material: about 40€
