What if you want to make a Chanel jacket but didn't want to bother with all of that hand quilting and didn't want to get involved with an epic project. There are alternatives to the interior finishes that are acceptable. This jacket originally retailed for $2,250, it is a fancy tweed, very soft and luxurious, much like the tweeds used for Chanel jackets.
Honk Kong bound seam allowances
Silk crepe de chine facings
Pocket detail 3 layers of crepe de chine cut on the bias and fringed.
Silk crepe de chine hem facing with scalloped lace.
Seam finish hidden under a strip of crepe de chine
And if you look closely to the left, you can see under the facing an area that reveals a serged edge.
If you've been sitting on the sidelines thinking you could never have a jacket that resembles that Chanel cardi, because you didn't want to commit to quilting, here's your alternative. The idea of these finishes appeals to me for a summer version of the cardi, something that doesn't have an extra layer to make it even warmer.
This construction would highlight the soft drape of the tweed, with no interference from lining or quilted backing. It looks "finished" on the inside. I would have concerns over time that it would be stretched out, and would not store the jacket on a hanger just to be sure. The other thing I would add to this are removable underarm shields to protect the garment from waxy deodorant. As a relatively quick project (if you already have a TNT), there's nothing wrong with this approach.
