Deep muted red and black shadow plaid,, deadstock from an LA designer. Mid weight with a softly brushed face and smooth back, with an appealing soft hand and lovely soft drape. Would work equally well lined or unlined. The balanced plaid has a 4" repeat. Ideal for those who cannot wear wool. Right for a jacket, coat, vest, menswear, accessories.
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.
