Paul Plaid Japanese Cotton
PRICED AND SOLD BY THE 1/2 YARD
EXAMPLE: TO ORDER 2.5 YARDS ENTER 5 IN THE QUANTITY BOX
Warm toned yarn dyed plaid from a Japanese mill in a beautiful quality shirting cotton. Tones of camel, rust, taupe, gray and soft black in an intricate weave that blends lightly textured shadow stripes into the mix. Silky smooth, light weight with a soft airy drape. The weight is right for a shirt, top, tunic, skirt or dress, right for men, women and children's clothes too. A quiet beauty in an unusual, hard to find color range.
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/dry gentle.
