designer edge finish from the past

sewfar | Posted in General Discussion on

Long ago I remember reading an article in a very old sewing magazine…possibly Threads about a famous designer who was known for her soft supple light   jackets.  It stated that she did not use facings on these jackets but instead turned a narrow edge and sewed several lines of stitching around the neck etc.  They said  it did not make an especially durable finish but  with care it lasted and the flow was well worth it.  I suppose much like the new raw edge finishes now.  Anyone know the designer or technique?

    The Chanel Jacket perhaps?  But they are lined.

    On page 54 of the current issue, the turnover neckline "facing" is shown on a vintage garment.
