I have the same concerns about the style but this looks just very cool on you. It's great enough I might even try it...

My first thought when I saw it was Chanel rather than David Jones (dept store). I like it very much. I also prefer the raw edge. All your procrastination paid off in the end with a lovely jacket. Wear it well.

Great jacket! It must have been annoying to remove the vinyl trim after all your work :( but I like the final deconstructed look. And I know what you mean about houndstooth :) at least fabric in flat form. As a jacket I don't think of DJ's. Nice matching of the houndstooth too.

totally gorgeous. first review I've bothered to click on in weeks!!!

Very chic, and an impressive effort. The fringed edge is much better than the leather trim.

Did not think DJ's at all - but what a smart jacket!

Love your jacket - I have almost the identical fabric (from EOS) and wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with it - thanks to your review problem solved!

Very chic and it looks wonderful on you! The fringe really makes it. And a very informative review. Thanks!

The fringed edges look really great-it's a nice contrast between classic and modern. Hope you enjoy wearing it!

I've never been interested in this pattern since, like you, I don't consider myself "Chanel-ish". Now that I've seen your lovely, sportier version I'm getting tempted. Pairing it with comfy jeans and sweater is perfect!

I love this. While I love the look, the Chanel jacket doesn't fit into my lifestyle. But this, this I could do! I think the fringed edges are perfect. Thanks for the review.

I'm joining the chorus of love, love, love. It looks fabulous on you, love the houndstooth. I liked the leatherish trim too but agree about the waviness. What a pity. However I am a fan of the fringing also.

great looking jacket - I have bought some similar fabric to make a Chanel type jacket

Very chic jacket..styled beautifully..very current. Can you expound a bit more on your method of attaching the lining to the jacket fabric please? You trimmed off the SA on the lining and left a raw edge when zigzagging to the raw edge of the jacket? Did you turn under some of the lining before zigging to jacket? The lining photos do not appear to have a "raw" edge. I love your jacket as it appears soft and lightweight. Thanks for the review and any further explanation you can give me, although your review is very thorough and's just that one little part that confuses me.

Fantastic jacket! Tres chic but very modern at the same time!

Great jacket! Thanks for the review as I have this one in the cue and planned on using basic sewing techniques rather than the full couture methods. Your has worked very well.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. You really make a difference to my sartorial confidence. Dear Fran G - in relation to your question. 1. Sandwich shell and lining together - have scores of pins over the whole jacket or tailor tack all over (just like getting a quilt ready for quilting). 2. Trim off the 1. 5cm seam allowance all around - as this would have been used to bag the lining to the shell. 3. Measure in 1cm around the edge. Tuck under lining (tack if you prefer) and sew on the 1cm line with short small zig zag (I think my stitch was 1 length 1 width). I tried to show the lining tucked in on the photo but you may not be able to see it. 4. Then fringe the fabric. 5. It is preferable if applying interfacing all over not to have interfacing going right to the edge. Fran, if this is not clear please message me. Taa.

Your perseverance paid off, Maree -- lovely jacket and the fringe softens the houndstooth just the right amount! Super look and looks beautiful on you!

Fantastic jacket, perfectly styled to look very 'you'! I love the slim simplicity of it, and love the fit and subtle details as well.

Maree..thanks so much for your additional explanation concerning the lining and jacket fringing..I understand what you did now!
