I guess this is a Chanel-style jacket, but a much simplified version of one :-). I made this a long long time ago and didn’t wear it much but now it’s too small for me. Made using a pattern – I forget which, but probably an old Vogue pattern. Those pockets are mock pockets only – see what I mean about simplified?
Wool plaid, using crepe on cuffs /borders/mock pockets, with black lining fabric.
