Classic French Jacket

Ever wanted to make a classic French jacket inspired by Chanel using traditional techniques? It was one of my ambitions when I finished work and had time to do one justice.

When I found this cloth from Linton Tweeds I knew it was my time to take the plunge......................here's the article I wrote a few years ago and was featured in a couple of paper and online magazines. I used Vogue 8991 which is still available with very detailed instructions.....although I used other sources of refence to get the more genuine finish.
