I read about a sew a long starting in October for a Chanel style jacket. If you're interested in following along all the information is here

Susan Khalje has agreed to contribute with help and advice for this sew a long. Seems like a wonderful opportunity!!

Thanks!

I didn't see a sign up either. Just passing along the info for those that may want to further investigate. Sounds interesting to me that SK has agreed to be a part of this SAL.

Thanks for sharing! This looks like a wonderful opportunity, and I'd love to sign up too. At least I will follow these blogs now so that I can keep pace with the sew along.

Thanks for posting about the sew along. It looks like a great opportunity and a lot of fun. Thewallinna and A Challenging Sew both mention that Susan Khalje has a new book coming out in October but I can't find a listing of the book on Susan's website nor on Amazon. On the other hand, Claire Shaeffer has a new book coming out in October about the couture cardigan jacket. Does Susan Khalje also have a new book coming out?

Thank you so much for the mention! I'm thrilled at the interest :-)

I see there was a comment about my email not working...all fixed now! SO sorry.....Hellochallengingsew@gmail.com if its still a issue. I'll get right back to you.

Also, Susan is working on a pattern for her version of the French jacket which she is hoping will be available in October/November and also a DVD which will be a very detailed step by step and that should be released in the New Year. There is no book planned as far as I am aware.

I will do a post on the DVD when it is released for all interested.

and of course while there is no need to sign up to join in, if you would like to just leave a comment at the end of the post. Its great to actually connect to someone.

Happy weekend!

Drats at the timing of the sew along! I am just starting to study for exams for the next 6 months, otherwise I would love to join in.

Will you be covering how to deal with the traditional three piece sleeves as part of this? I'll be sure to read along either way.
