This is a beautiful jacket. I am getting ready to start mine. Where did you buy this fabulous fabric? You look stunning!

I bought the boucle wool at Mood Fabric on line. They don't ship to Alaska so I had them ship to my son in CA then he shipped to me. The jacket is such a rewarding experience to make.

Very very nice work. I guess you enjoyed every hour of the project.

Thanks Lisbeth I did all 75 hours of it. Actually I try and explain to people it was the process rather than the finished jacket that was so enjoyable.

Nancy that I have done my own "Chanel" I understand just what a great job you have done. I worked at least 75 hours......but like you.....I loved it. :-)

Yep all the real fun was in making it. I made a second one too using a different pattern and method from a Craftsy class that later became available.
