If you are looking for some fantastic pictures of Chanel garments (Couture & RTW) and garments by other designers that were inspired by Coco Chanel, then you need to purchase this DVD from Claire Shaeffer. There are over 800 detailed pictures that are sure to inspire your creative side. This is an amazing collection of Chanel garments "up close and personal". I can't wait for Volume II.

Me too! I don't think Claire has a website, does she?

Unfortunately, Claire doesn't have a website. However, you can contact her via email. Her email address is: sewfari@earthlink.net.

I've been also waiting for this CD. I emailed David Coffin today and the CD is not available just yet, but will be soon. He said it is essentially done, and that he and Claire Shaeffer are still working on the final tweaking of the details. Claire will be selling the CD. You can have your name put on an announce list thru Claire's email sewfari@earthlink.net. Hope this answers some questions :)

Does Claire Shaeffer provide instructions about how to recreate some of the Chanel details?

Instructions are not provided in the DVD. However, she does teach a "Chanel and That Suit" class where you can get these instructions and see many garments from her personal collection up close and personal. I have written a review on this, as well.
