Classic Chanel type jacket I made for my mother for Christmas.
I used pattern 109 from March issue 2012. There are front and back princess seams and 7/8 sleeves.
I cut size 38 and was hoping for the best as this was a surprise and there would not be any fitting. I should not have worried, it fitted perfectly.
The wool boucl is beautiful: blue, purple and with ribbons woven with the wool.
The jacket is interfaced and fully lined in bright blue lining.
It closes with eyes and hooks.
More details on my blog.
