    Jo-Ann and I have been happily sewing together for many, many years. As a Christmas gift, she made her daughter-in-law a beautiful Chanel-like jacket and coordinating skirt. The jacket is made from an unusual Italian wool in a large-scale plaid, lined in a gorgeous shade of red silk charmeuse. With so little fabric to work with and so many pieces to match, there was not a scrap to spare! The skirt is made from a soft flannel-like stretch-woven wool, lined with a stretch-woven poly and lycra. This is Jo-Ann's first time making fringe and we think she did an amazing job! Magda is a very lucky DIL.
