the Chanel jacket part 3

This is an interfacing that is made with horse hair. It will keep my jacket from loosing its shape.All we have to do now is the sleeves and the pockets. We decided to cut strips of fabric to inset into the seams so there would be more consistency to the fringe. Otherwise the fringe would go in different directions where the material was bias cut. we also pulled the blue threads so that the fringe was white with pink and red flecks rather than navy blue. I love the contrast. It plays up the detail and pops a little more.
