If you haven't heard of Claire Shaeffer, you probably aren't making clothes. She designs couture patterns for Vogue Pattern, writes for Threads and Vogue Patterns Magazine and she gives 5 day couture sewing classes in Palm Springs. I'm taking the Chanel jacket class and will learn many techniques that I hope will take my skills to another level. I sometimes get a little frustrated with collars, sleeves and some of the details that take a garment from good to great. Hence, the CS class. I'll review the class and post photos of the 1/2 Chanel jacket that we will be working on. I hope I do a good job, wish me luck!
