Chanel Inspired jacket

I was inspired by Susan Khalje’s article in Threads #121 — Inside the Chanel Jacket — and made this for my daughter, Claire. I bought the fabric and trim at Britex in San Francisco — their selection is wonderful. I had particular fun picking out the buttons. The black eyelash trim gives the jacket a more youthful edge. Claire wears the jacket for a casual look with jeans and with a skirt for a more dressy look. The article had terrific step by step instructions, that were easy to follow. The jacket turned out just as the article said it would. I definitely recommend this project!
