Both your jackets are great but I especially like the plummy (?) colour one.

Stunning in every detail. Something to aspire to. Did you find the M& J chain to be weighty enough?

I love jackets and jacket making. It will be some time before i am as good at it as you are. Nice job!

Thank you for a great review. The jackets both look good on you.

Thank you all for your lovely comments! Martha, I found the wool much more malleable than the raw silk. It really allows shaping with steam.

Beautiful jackets. I just finished a Coco-style jacket (one of CS's other Vogue versions) - my first in this style. I made mine out of silk and wished I had used wool. Did you find a lot of difference in them?

Wow, beautiful jackets! Six weeks of sewing = a treasured heirloom garment.

WOW! I love your jackets and the steam shaped collar is something else! I have a Chanel jacket on the bucket list. I'll be referring to review before I start.
