Join me in my Chanel Jacket making project.  I have had this on my to-do list and confess have held back because of the amount of work involved and not wanting to ruin my beautiful linton tweed fabric.

Here you will find links to my posts, together with other links that I am sure you will love.

  5. I recently purchased the pattern to make Burda 7934 - but the pattern is missing page three of the instructions, instead giving me two copies of page two and one of page one. Would it be possible to share the last page on the insturctions - the part for setting in the sleeves? I would be so appreciative! Thanks!
