29 Jul Susan Khalje Giveaway!

 

Are you still there?

I hope so because I have a fabulous giveaway to announce – Susan Khalje is generously donating her newly released  French Jacket Video class  to one lucky winner!

SUSAN KHALJE FRENCHJACKET

It’s true!  Susan brings her lifetime of experience in to this video course, offering advice that you cannot get anywhere else.

Included in the package are:

  • A Custom Jacket Pattern Designed by Susan Khalje Sent Directly to Your Doorstep

  • Instant Access to Full Length Step-by-Step Instructions

  • High Definition Streaming Video on Multiple Platforms and Devices

Instructions are provided for a patterned and a solid jacket in two different courses providing thorough and careful   instruction to learn at your own pace at any time, for three years.

The Classic French Jacket course is offered in high definition and can be viewed on your computer at home, your tablet while working in your studio or even your smart phone while on the go.

I had the good fortune to take Susan’s class in October of 2013 which was a life changing experience in sewing terms. Susan introduced me to techniques I never knew existed, and gracefully guided me through the process.                      

    IMG_2122  img_21251

 I loved the jacket so much that I completed the look with a skirt, and have already purchased the new class knowing I’ll never go wrong with Susan Khalje by my side.

    Found your blog when a I returned to sewing and love following your own sewing experiences especially the tips and tricks learnt in the Susan Khalije classes you attended. .

    You have a great sense of style and looked so stunning in the French style jacket ( and skirt) that you made that I rushed out and bought a length of beautiful fabric for myself to make an similar outfit,. The fabric has remained uncut as ai have been too scared to cut it in case as made a mistake,! So I would love the opportunity to follow Susan’s French Style pattern and video and turn the fabric into a lovely jacket for myself..

    Thank you for the opportunity to enter and good luck with your new project.

    The charcoal jacket is beautiful and fits so well. One critique are the buttons used on the front, they detract rather than enhance the composition.

    This would be perfect. I wanted to make a Chanel style jacket, but thought I would practice doing a vest first. I had a piece of beautiful white wool boucle that I only have a yard of, so thus the vest. I had put it off until I found the lining, and stumbled across a silk scarf I had but never worn, perfect. Then it was spring, and I didn’t want to be sewing wool. So this would be perfect. .

    Hi Sarah!

    I always enjoy your blogs and believe it to be the best one I’ve discovered! I’ve made a couple of the Chanel style jackets on my own but I need guidance in order to make a really good one. Since I live in Casa de Campo, Dominican Republic, I have lots of spare time but there aren’t any classes available locally. This would be a great opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills needed. And, even though I won’t win, I’m not lucky that way, I will probably purchase this class and attempt another jacket. I hope it turns out as lovely as yours!

    Your jacket looks fabulous. I took the class in May and my jacket was a disaster. I do not have a symmetrical body and Susan pinned my sleeves in and the one side of the jacket was wider than the other. The fabric had been cut on the inside for the piece that fits in the sleeve so I could not selvedge the fronts of the jacket. I had to order more fabric from Alice at Mendel Goldberg and she very kindly sold me 2yds of the jacket fabric and the lining fabric for the price of 1yd. This has been the most expensive jacket I have ever made. I would like to win this video to see if I can do a better job of the jacket on my own.

    Wouldn’t we all love to be the winner of this exciting class. I especially would as I have a piece of Donnegal tweed that my mother brought back over 15 years ago from Ireland. It was her plan to make a skirt and knit a matching sweater. The sweater got completed and well worn but the skirt was waiting for “the special time”. Now that she is 94 she doesn’t think she needs a fancy skirt so the fabric is mine. Since I just returned from 14 days in Ireland, also visiting Donnegal, I would love to make this my fall project!! There is just enough fabric (I hope) for a classic Channel jacket!

    Hi there Sarah and Susan too,
    Thank you so much for offering us all this rare opportunity. I have taken Susan’s Couture Dress course on Craftsy and it was invaluable when tackling a Marfy dress for myself last year. So many techniques, hints and tips made sure the dress looked Handmade. Living in the U.K. means it would be rather difficult to meet Susan in person, although, you feel like you are in her sewing room when you watch her!. Many of us know that we are truly receiving sound solid professional advice that helps us achieve the finish and results we have yearned for.
    I have to own up to having made a chanel style jacket for my daughter, using Threads articles by Susan and books on the subject by other sewists. I would love to make one for myself as a treat and see if I did the first one correctly!! Following Susan’s online video course would be tremendous .

    Thank you for your always-delightful posts and, in the latest one, the invitation to submit a comment in order to be “in the running” to win Susan Khalje’s “Classic French Jacket” video class.

    It would be absolute bliss to win this wonderful prize!! After having been inspired by your success with the French jacket class, I armed myself with some lovely apple green boucle wool and a complementing Valentino (yes, really!!) silk for the lining. I have Claire Shaeffer’s Vogue pattern for a French jacket and two of her books on couture sewing. One would think, surely, that these would be more than enough to get me going on the production of my very own French-style jacket. The problem is………NERVES! Nerves that I will wreck my treasured fabrics, not achieve the desired fit, not affix the braid correctly……..the list goes on.

    I live in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, so attending one of Susan’s classes is practically beyond the realms of possibility. To have Susan and her video class right here on my computer, in my sewing room, with her superb knowledge and instructional skills would be like a dream come true. Truly bliss. Fingers crossed!!

    Love love love your outfit. Simply elegant and gorgeous. I’ve been sewing for decades, mostly self taught, and would love to hone my skill further – without a doubt a class like this would do it!

    I would love to do Susan’s class. To have her sitting on my shoulder as I made my first Classic French Jacket would be awesome. having completed Susan’s Couture dress class, I know that i would learn so much with this video.

    I also want to say a very big thank you to you, Sarah, for being an inspiration to me to get back into sewing and enjoy wearing really beautiful clothes that fit. Thank you.

    What a beautiful design. As someone who has turned my love of sewing into a small alteration business on the side, I would love the challenge of finally making something for myself again! Can’t wait to be the winner, :).

    OMG, I can’t believe I almost missed this! Making a French Cardigan Jacket is definitely on my sewing bucket list. I’ve amassed quite a library on the subject and I think a calls with Susan is probably what I need to make it finally come together.

    Wowza! I sure would love to win this class! I have drooled over the French jackets for years, bought fabric, read many articles, but was afraid to take the plunge! This would really be a dream come true.

    Susan used to have her own sewing show on TV and I watched her faithfully. I learned many useful sewing tips and tricks. I know I would thoroughly enjoy learning about the construction of this beautiful French couture jacket, especially with fitting issues. Love your blog and always look forward to seeing what you have made. Thanks for your inspiration and please enter me I this wonderful give away.

    What a fabulous opportunity!!! I absolutely love following you on your blog and seeing all the wonderful things you make. I have taken Susan’s The Couture Dress on Craftsy. She is so informative and gives great detail in her lessons. I saw her new class offered through her updates, but I can’t afford it right now. I would love the opportunity to be entered in to win. Thank you for all you do!!!

    Now that I’m retired with too much time on my hands, I’m returning to sewing and fitting my clothes. Learning new techniques online is such a luxury and to be able to learn couture is as good as it gets. Many thanks to you both for your instructions and patience!

    Your jacket and skirt look great. I have so enjoyed watching your sewing journey and seeing your skills improve right before my eyes. Not only have your sewing skills improved but you seem to have developed a much more confident and fun way of putting fabrics together to give your clothes a much more professional look. It’s been fun to see several different versions of the same pattern with a completely different feel to them because of the design decisions you’ve made. You are a real inspiration.

    Wow! What a great giveaway! I was lucky enough to attend one of Susan’s classes last year, and have been saving up ever since for my next visit Stateside to take another. Obviously I’d dearly love to win myself, but know that whoever the lucky winner is will get so much out of this online class

    You certainly did make a smashingly good jacket. Will you be doing any more jackets, or does one basically cover your particular needs? Would love to see you do another, perhaps in a slightly different style just to mix it up. The blue of your blue and white tunic would be electrifying in a suit.
