Making a Dress for Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel
Click her name to view her Wikipedia bio.

This portrait doll of Coco Chanel was made by the Italian company, Lenci. She is a smoker. The photo, below, is how she was when Sue received her. Using the remnants of Coco's outfit as a guide/pattern, Sue made a new dress and underskirt for her, using the same type of fabric - felt and organza.

What do you do when a famous dress designer needs one herself?
