I must admit I'm a little perplexed about the Chanel-style quilted lining. For those of you who have sewn one or contemplated it, I have a few questions:
--What's the point, exactly? Is there a benefit to spending the extra time? Or is only cool because Chanel did it?
--Can you only do this with boucle fabrics that hides the stitching?
--Do you have to hand-stitch, or can you machine stitch. If done by machine, doesn't this show on the outside?
--Do you happen to know of any good links to photos or tutorials online? I know I've seen a few in pattern reviews, but can't recall.

Thanks!

Here is the link to my "Chanel" jacket I made a few years ago. I think I was pretty detailed with photos. I hope this helps.

Quilting the lining to the bouclè supports the bouclè without stiffening it. It is absolutely worth it!

You do it on bouclè fabric to support it and yes, you can machine stitch it. It is invisible on the outside if you choose threads which match the colors of the lining and of the outer shell. I also like the quilted the look of the lining on the Chanel style jacket.

You can find lots of pictures on the Chanel jacket sew along blog http://chaneljacket.blogspot.com

I definitively recommend to give it a try!

As many have said, the quilting supports the bouclé, which can be quite lightweight and sometimes almost sheer, but quilting also makes the light garment fabric and the lining behave as one: no weird sagging or conflicts with interfacing or lining will be visible anywhere. The finished jacket is more like a very dressed-up cardigan sweater.

The quilting is done on highly textured fabric that tends to disguise the stitching. I'm not sure why that is, because it could certainly be turned into a design element. However, I don't think Chanel ever highlighted the quilting stitches for their own sake.

I've made a few versions of the quilted lining technique and I love it. A Chanel jacket-like version feels comfy and slippery to put on and definitely sweater or even heavy sweatshirt like to wear.

I took the Angela Wolf class here on Pattern Review and am hooked. I'm just finishing my second jacket right now - and I love them. The silk lining moulds to your body and feels so luxe. They look fantastic - far less mumsy than a cardigan yet just as comfortable, smart as a tailored jacket but cooler.
Yes they do take a while to make - until you get into into the swing. Following Angela's excellent tutorial I machine quilt the lining and seams, then hand sew the ends/lining together when I feel like handsewing quietly or watching tv.
They are a project to run alongside other quicker things - and I have lots of others in mind - they become addictive!
