Sew the Classic Box Jacket

Coming soon!

Skill level: Intermediate


Think Coco Chanel and you instantly think of the iconic Chanel Jacket. It's a great sustainable make because it adds the perfect finish to any outfit, whether it's thrown over office wear or worn casual over your favourite white t-shirt and jeans at the weekend. The box jacket is a wardrobe asset and you'll find yourself wearing it for all occasions.


This class uses McCall's 6441 pattern. It requires minimal tailoring compared to a Chanel-style jacket, suits various body shapes and features a separating zipper for a more modern finish. You'll learn how to sew a full lining, flattering princess seams as well as discovering how to insert a separating zipper and evaluate any fit issues that may crop up during sewing.


This class costs £250 and will run over four 3-hour sessions. Email us at to register interest.




What's included in the class?

The printed pattern is included in the price of the class. Equipment such as sewing machine, scissors and tape measure are available to use during the class but students are invited to bring their own.


Skill level

This class is suitable for advanced beginners and intermediate sewers who are able to use a sewing machine and understand the basic terms of dressmaking. You will, however, be guided through each stage with demonstrations as well as lots of opportunity to ask questions.


What do I need to bring?

Bring a medium- to heavy-weight woven fabric such as wool, poly-blends or garbadine. Consider ethical fabrics from online suppliers such as Offset Warehouse to make your jacket as sustainable as possible. If you have any questions about fabric, please email us at
