Gorgeous jacket. I love everything about it -- your trim, the mandarin collar, the lining fabric! Makes me itch to make another one.

Bravo! Beautiful! Thank you for your post. I'm about to embark on my first chanel-type jacket and had been debating about whether or not to line w/ organza. The Pinterest board is super helpful too. Thank you!

Hi Meg, thanks for your comments! I'm going to message you because I'm doing some research on Spadea for a possible project. I've found them on eBay and vintage pattern sites, but they are rare and pricey! I'm just starting a blog at and will be talking more about Spadea in upcoming posts. Julie

PS: Please see my longer Comments. Where did you find the Spadea pattern? eBay? collectors? I'm astounded that anyone has one of them, anywhere, much less the Chanel jacket pattern!

Wow -- what a fabulous jacket! And, the name "Spadea" jumped out at me. I haven't seen or heard that name in decades. I grew up about 2 miles from Milford, NJ, where Spadea had their testing and sewing division --- in a renovated, old historic mill located along the Delaware River --- and a number of my mother's friends who sewed very, very well, worked there, sewing and testing patterns. I always knew that Spadea was for advanced sewing people, because of the way the patterns and instructions were, but the results of Spadea patterns were just wonderful --- even as a middle schooler and jr. high school student, I admired the clothes. Anyway, I'm glad to see someone still sews from Spadea (which got sold to ???), and that you made an honest-to-goodness Chanel jacket! Wow ... that's on my bucket list of sewing. Meg McKinney

Yes, I was definitely sewing on hooks and eyes during the big game! It helped with all that nervous energy. I think anyone could make a Chanel with the right guidance and perseverance. Claire Schaeffer has a new book/DVD that's very thorough, and I heard that Susan Khalje is coming out with a pattern/DVD. I learned the haute couture techniques taking Susan's "Haute Couture Dress" course on It completely transformed my sewing! I have a Pinterest page called "make your own Chanel jacket" with links to a number of resources.
