I've been reading up on making a Chanel jacket. A blogger named LunaLoo left me a comment and link to making a Chanel which I checked out and realize there is a lot more to one that I first thought. I hadn't realized they are 'quilted'. I also came across this gals blog Erica who made one and showed her process including the quilting part.
My pattern came today but I'm not jumping in just yet I plan on making a black velvet bolero first to go with a tartan full skirt I made.
The red silk is for a scarf that is with this pattern too, thought it would go with the whole outfit.
