If you follow this blog, you’ll know that I have promised a “next” post on a suit which I’ve been working on. Another project (non-sewing) has taken me away from it for a few days, so it’s not quite finished yet. However, to keep my promise, I’m offering a teaser: can you pick the pattern which I am using to make my suit?
Here is the fabric, a lovely, finely woven and incredibly soft, windowpane check wool from France, which I purchased at Britex last summer in San Francisco:
And here are four patterns. Which one do you think I selected to make in this fabric? (Click on the photos to see the patterns in more detail.)
Keep in mind that this fabric presents significant “plaid matching” challenges, which I had to consider when I decided on the pattern. The more seams in a pattern, the higher the challenge (usually). So – was I safe and cautious, or gutsy and daring?
