These are my versions of the Chanel jacket. I have wanted a Chanel jacket for ever, however its out of my price range. The Brown version is my “test” jacket made from fabric out of my stash, and the blue/gray one is the final product that I want to wear for my sister’s wedding in May, made from some beautiful Linton Tweed. In order to make them slightly different, I didn’t add the fringed trim, and added 2 extra pockets. There is lots more about my whole Chanel jacket making journey and the alterations I made on my blog here http://psewing.blogspot.co.uk/p/making-of-chanel-type-jacket.html
