Sumptuous Japanese quality in a contemporary plaid in deep, dark eggplant and black. The rare cotton wool blend base fabric has been commercially washed resulting in an elegant soft cozy hand, subtle texture and malleable drape. This contemporary Japanese fabric combines cutting edge technology with centuries of textile traditions in an exquisite and on trend fabric, and reflect what I saw recently in upper end RTW in Paris. Right for a jacket, coat, vest, shacket, menswear, accessories. One way plaid, 7" repeat, cut as fora nap. A subtle, stunning fabric that begs to be touched, feels delicious!
To figure extra yardage, multiply the repeat by the number of main pattern pieces. For example, if the repeat is 4" and you have 4 main/large pattern pieces, you would need a minimum of 16 extra inches. To match plaids, cut single thickness, starting with the main pattern piece at center front or back, placing CF/CB centered between (NOT ON), a dominant color or line, then cut one piece at a time, using the cut out piece as a pattern piece for the next, flipping, so you get a left and right side. I draw the plaid on the pattern pieces to match at side seams and notches on sleeves. If the plaid is unbalanced, cut as for a nap. Sew with a walking foot to prevent shifting. Some pieces like pockets, yoke and collar can be cut on the bias.
Pre-treat by wash gentle and air dry. Test a swatch first.
