Chanel style tweed jacket with wool trim. I wanted a less delicate variation of a Chanel jacket and made this in thick wool tweed. The lining is hand stitched to the tweed in stripes following the shape of the pieces, as one would stitch the padding to an gambeson armoury jacket. The tweed holds its shape very well by this and it feels comfortable to wear. The pattern is drafted by me.
Wool tweed and wool yarn. Lining unknown and a brass chain.
Pattern of the Week
The oversized shape has a cool bell shaped silhouette with a wide body and fitted sleeves
