Karl Lagerfeld has just released a two minute video showing the construction of a Chanel jacket from fashion sketch and muslin through final finished garment. The biggest surprise isn't that the seamstresses use sewing machines and iron the right side of the fabric without press cloths -- it's that these elegant women (at least the ones in the video) could almost pass for models themselves.

No sewing project is ever a complete success nor a total failure.

Thanks Nancy for sharing this amazing video. I can see where you get some "inspiration" from, for creating your lovely tailored jackets.
