Description

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.

Material Notes

Wool tweed and wool yarn. Lining unknown and a brass chain.

    Very nice jacket, I especially love the shape of the back. Also reminds me I should really get on with my tweed winter jacket ;)
