Three years ago I would have never even thought about starting a project of this caliber.
My Mother sent this beautiful boucle to me last September and I really had planned on making a Chanel suit from it last Fall. Well that didn't happen, but when this challenge came along I signed right up. Of course I experienced some feelings of remorse shortly after joining and even thought about withdrawing my name from the challenge. But I presevered and here is my finished project.
This was quite a challenge and I want to thank Clever Girl and Cindy for setting this up. There are plans for a matching pencil skirt and a dressy blouse made from the same fabric as the jacket's lining. I have learned so much from all of the people who posted here, and I will be making another jacket of this type.
I'll take pictures wearing it as soon as the skirt and blouse are made.
I'll be cheering everyone else on to the finish line...
