For the love of plaid


It's no secret.  My love of plaid.  And this time of year my sewing thoughts always turn to plaid...and wool.  I recently received several 2-3 yard pieces from my mother's friend.  I'm envisioning varsity jackets, swing coats and pencil skirts.  But to start things off, I opted for a pair of pants.  Nothing fancy, slightly high-waisted (which is how I typically sew my pants) and narrow through the leg. 



No pockets.  No lining.  Lapped, side zipper.  Hook and eye on the waistband with a button embellishment.

Bosley was gracious enough to assist in my photos.



Yes, dreary Autumn, I think I am ready for you.

  2. I love plaid and flannel ( allergic to wool ) in the fall and winter. There so warm and cozy.
