Very classic !
Beautiful quilted and sophisticated in every littel detail.
One of the best sewing patterns available for Chanel DIY jackets.
Great instructions by Claire Schaeffer !
Please pay extra attention in buying the fabric: it might look outdated instead of classic.
Comfortable? Not at all. The jacket fits perfectly but the tight sleeves and fitting shape leaves little room for movement and comfort.
Take your time. This is a very slow-sewing project.
