The techniques that are used to create a Classic French Jacket are, to my mind, a sub-set of traditional couture techniques. While there are similarities to other couture projects, there are applications specific to the construction of the jacket that put this sewing project in a category of its own. Hence, it has its own class. Seven days are devoted to the creation of this fashion classic - and what we make is the haute couture version. A muslin is prepared ahead of time (pattern suggestions are given, along with full instructions). Fabric, trim and button resources are also supplied, and I have quite a range of trims (many are vintage Chanel) and buttons in the studio.
