When I saw news of it I decided to jump right on the band wagon because I didn't want to get locked out like I did with the Coat Sew A Long last year. So, I am officially entered in. My classes end around September 16th and I think that even if I don't start until that time I should be able to finish by the Nov. 15th deadline. After all I'll be in the process of taking my FINAL class during that time, which should be a lot less time consuming than the two class I'm taking now.
I have my fabric and four patterns to choose from already. I think the only thing I'll need to order is the trim for the jacket. I'm also starting to read up on Chanel Jacket construction and paying close attention to the Sew A Long blog. There's going to be tons of inspiration and information that I can get here. Ann sent me some Chanel Jacket construction information earlier in the year that I need to bone up on. I have to make a note to get the Claire Shaffer book "Couture Sewing", and I'm reading up on two piece sleeve construction since I usually choose not to do them. I should be good to go.

I'm looking forward to learning and sharing all along the way to November 15th.
