I knitted it from the top and did the arms on circular needles. The hems are in crochet, idea stolen from Odd Molly. I used 10 balls of yarn and now I have to weave in all ends and add some velvet trim and snap buttons.
I got 2 hole balls left and are going to use them for a cutebag found on an internetsite, forgotten what site. Sorry!
And it´s been added too! Let´s skip this for tonight

The grey is the lining and the burgundy is for the inside of the hood and facings. It was nice sewing the bouclé but I lost some needles in it and I was glad that I used 2 cm seam allowances! I attached the chain to. I had a golden chain since a long time ago that I used, but the zipper is going to be brass, I´ve decided not to think too much about this. So far I´m pleased with the result and I´m glad I shoosed this tecnique instead of underlaying and do it the usual way and so far I´m very pleased with the pattern. It will probably not look like a regular Chanel jacket but everyone know I can´t afford that either... I think I´ll like this better!

and decided to make a jacket for myself. I shortened the jacket 5 cm/ 2 inches, it´s longer than on the drawing and shortened the arms to, I do that on all Onionpatterns and made a FBA. It´s under construction, I´m using the tecnique in last Threads and had some difficulties figuring out how to do the hood. I´m lining the complete jacket, used a quilted burgundy fabric bought at PR weekend Copenhagen last year for the hood, front and lower arms and grey viscoselining for the rest. I like it so far. I havn´t been sewing much this fall so I really need something to get me going. I have enought fabric for a skirt too, but I dont think I´ll ever wear them together.

This is how it looks like and it looks godd on me to and I like it, but I don´t feel comfortable wearing it now, it feels to summery.
Here´s a detail of the fabric and the trim. I have to see what I can find in the closet to tune the colors down or I just have to wait for next summer or early spring will do.
