Hi there

I am fairly new to Pattern Review, and the site is so huge........and I dont want to break any rules!!

I have just read the review about Vogue Pattern 8259; the Claire Shaeffer Chanel style jacket.

Have got together my fabric and notions to make my very own Chanel Jacket and want to make it following all the Couture Techniques. No mean feat living here in Turkey. So, I have my fabric, sourced from the company who supply Chanel..........Lintons back in my home country.......England.

But, I cant get started because the fabulous pattern is out of print.

Is there a section here on Pattern Review that I can ask the question....................does anyone have the pattern that would be willing to sell it on.....................I am ideally looking for size 8-10.

It has taken me ages to get all my supplies together, and now I can't source the pattern.

Can anyone help and put me out of my misery. I have emailed and phoned stores, none have the pattern anymore, I have tried ebay etc ............still no joy.

Would love to get my hands on Claires fabulous pattern.

Many thanks in advance.
MirrorQueen.

You can post a wanted ad in the classifieds section, although I think you have to be a paying member to do that (I know you have to be to sell stuff, just not sure about the wanted section). I know you said you searched ebay - have you set up a saved search that will notify you if the pattern does show up?

There's also a Yahoo group called SewItsForSale where people buy/sell sewing items. I'm not sure if you can join from outside of the US, though.

You might try reading the Chanel Jackets It's a collection of women who have reproduced Chanel jackets with various patterns. I tried making V8259 and it was too square for my body shape, so I made it out of Claire Shaeffer's V-neck jacket instead.


These pattern numbers were taken from another thread here on PR for a Chanel Jacket sew along.

Simplicity 4954 (out of print, but I liked it and ordered it on EBay)
Simplicity 4971 (plus sizes; also out of print)
Burda 8414 without the collar and not view C
McCall 4311
Butterick 4028 (also out of print)


Here are some other patterns that may be suitable:
Vogue 7975
Vogue 8259 (Claire Shaeffer mandarin collar--lacks princess seaming in the back, though)
Vogue 8369 (Claire Shaeffer v-neck)
Neue Mode 23264
New Look 6712

I think 8259 might be the Claire Schaeffer pattern with the 3-piece sleeve. While there are quite a few similar jacket patterns, finding a 3-piece sleeve is a more difficult task.

Most tailored jackets feature a 2-piece sleeve but Chanel did come up with using 3 pieces so it is somewhat individual to her. However, diligent searching might yield a tailored jacket with a 3 piece sleeve. I just don't know of any.

As for the couture technique used, the thread mentioned above is a good place and then there is the Threads website which has one or two articles on doing a couture Chanel-style jacket.

A new Ebay auction just came up for Vogue 8259. It's a pattern that has been cut though.

Did you ever locate your Claire Shaeffer #8259 pattern? I am looking for the same pattern in size 12-14-16. I have this pattern in size 18-20-22 and it has never been out of the envelope. I would be willing to trade if you found the smaller size.
Thanks,
Dee
Side note: I was probably one of those people bidding to $80 on Ebay a while back - it got too high for my purse!
