PREPARATION OF A CHANEL STYLE PASSEMENTERIE.
Beeing asked to make a Chanelstyled jacket for a Royal occasion this spring, I was facing a massive problem in finding a proper passementerie for the classic Chanel finish we whished for.
The first thing I had to do was to find components matching the jacket. In Sweden that can be a problem indeed.
However beeing satisfied with the result I began to put together the components. I started with two identical lines of braids and I fixed them on a biais of cotton so it would be possibel to shape curved lines later.
Secondly I trimmed the braid with the golden string by sewing it on the braid by using a basting teknik.
Thirdly I shaped each finnished passementerie depending on where on the jacket they were to be sewn onto.
To conclude the result I began to sew the twoline braid first and then sewed the topbraid ontop of the first one in order to obtain the final result.
