The Chanel jacket finally completed and worn to a tea at the Ivory Goose on Wed! 75 hours to complete.
The real star is the inside of this jacket it's just so beautiful. Lots of hand work in this and I love the gold chain at the bottom.
I cut out this jacket on Tue. It's a beautiful gold wool cashmere with a magenta velveteen collar facing.
The lining is a cotton/silk poplin gold in a 55% cotton/45% silk. I love this fabric. Have you ever used it?
The back has a low back panel it's a cute pattern and pretty darn easy next to the Chanel. I'm going to set-in the sleeves today. I have the lining put together but for the sleeves that is next. The pattern does not call for lining but I think lining it will add so much beauty and comfort to the wearing.
