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.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
