A little bit of Chanel
Added Jun 21, 2011
Made using Vogue 7975 view C, of completely divine, but very pricey, thickly spun and woven wool. Fully lined with a thin and floaty silk, and edged with a rather Renaissance, intricately twisted wide black braid. Lining attached mostly by hand, as was the braid. Braid edges mitred in the corners.
Yes, largely a hand-tailored labour of love…
This is a jacket I made a few years ago, but I just discovered it again and was so newly pleased with it I just had to put it up here…
