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€

Dishcloth sweater?

Dishcloth sweater ?

Today I wear a cotton knit sweater and matching cotton top with silk details both made of Schumacher fabrics. Though my husband says the design of the sweater reminds him of a dishcloth but I like it and don’t care about him kidding… I love to combine it with small trousers in a warm toffee shade and my nude elegant and beloved heels (one last in lightblue left) both Schumacher as well. As you can see I don’t wear much accessories again – I rather prefer to dress than to decorate – and honestly spoken: I don’t have so much accessories in my portfolio…. 🙁

Yesterday I sewed this new sexy v-neck oversize shirt in red and took pictures all time long to show you how I did it – please just give me a little bit more time to train how to prepare everything to upload it for you.IMAG0717

My glittering wine red oversize sweater

Today I will sew a bit as I already cut a red t-shirt a few days ago. So I just choose my glittering red oversize sweater which I sewed a few weeks ago. Additionally I sewed a matching top in this wonderful shade of washed out wine red silk – I sewed a gorgeous dress in it as well… Both fabrics are from Schumacher which they sell directly at their factory in Mannheim saying once in a month unfortunately just during the summer 🙁
My every day jeans are from Liu Jo Jeans – still remained of the days when I had my shop and in my opinion one of the best fitting jeans for me – and my new sweet little Prada Sport summer sling flats that recently I bought at yoox. Little accessories – this would only disturb while sewing.
I hope I will succeed in doing the first tutorial by pictures…..you will see tomorrow…IMG_0026
