I have been coveting Chanel cardigan jackets for sometime now so I decided to make one using all the couture techniques that go with it – internlining with silk orgaza, pad stitching the lining, sewing in the sleeves, pockets and lining by hand and adding the gold chain to add a little weight to the bottom of the jacket so it hangs nicely when worn. I have got so much use out of it so far. Its great to dress up for work, going out in the evening, pairing up with jeans for a more casual look – it just works for almost any occasion! This is my first Chanel style jacket and I have plans and amazing fabrics to make more!
