Fresh and cheerful multicolored plaid in apricot, mocha, green, turquoise, cream and black in a fine quality stretch woven. Light shirting weight is opaque with a soft matte hand, good crosswise stretch, light drape and 2-1/4" repeat. Appealing and just right for a shirt, tunic, dress, top, children's and perfect for a man's shirt too.

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.
