Fabulously stunning and even more stunning in person. No one would ever guess that this isn't the "real" thing. Your skills shine through on this one.

Your jacket is absolutely elegant. How fortunate you are to have taken a class with a master of the Chanel jacket. I'm sure your review has inspired a number of members.

It's absolutely gorgeous. You picked a great trim for that fabric.

It beautiful . You have done a great job I have made one of these too and have worn it so much . Its more like a knit than a tailored garment. I love your trim its a little ethereal rather than heavy which I see on "Chanel " jackets . I undid some of my tweed and used the yarn to plait a trim and used the selvage as a trim which sat under then plaited braid . It was such fun to make .
