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.


  1. 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.
